Order boom at Scandinavian Electric SystemsEquipment & Technology // February 1, 2006
Scandinavian Electric Systems AS (SES) in Bergen, Norway secured orders worth more than NKr 200 million in 2005 for diesel electric propulsion systems for shipowners in Norway and internationally.
The diesel electric systems supplied by SES are based on the company's Active Front End (AFE) converters, the second generation of which has been in operation for more than three years.
In December last year SES signed a NKr 35 million contract with Volstad Maritime for
delivery of the complete diesel electric system for a new ROV/support vessel with an option for a second vessel, the design in question being a ST256 from Skipsteknisk AS that will be built at Fosen Mekaniske Verksted in Norway.
The scope of supply under this contract includes the complete diesel electric system comprising four generators with a total power of 14,400kVA, two main propulsion motors each of 3,000kW, with AFE converters, four thruster motors with converters, starters and switchboards.
SES has an order back log of diesel electric systems for 15 vessels with options for additional 14 vessels.
