Arendal Spirit

A breakthrough of integrated power, propulsion and automation systems for better energy efficiency

Arendal Spirit was a breakthrough order for ABB in the floater business.  ABB provided an integrated solution that combines electric propulsion and Azipod® units with an automation system.

COSCO (Nantong) Shipyard Co., Ltd built the accommodation vessel for Singapore-registered owner Logitel Offshore, now owned by Teekay Offshore. The cylinder-shaped vessel has a displacement of about 40,000 tonnes and capacity to accommodate 490 persons.

Arendal Spirit is a highly innovative vessel that benefits from ABB’s full power package, which includes generators, switchboards and main transformers, as well as propulsion transformers and frequency converters. The vessel has also six Azipod® CZ units, conferring superior vessel energy efficiency and manoeuvrability. In addition, the ABB automation package provided is based on the 800xA Extended Automation platform.
