ABB’s first delivery of the Onboard DC grid was to Dina Star – a 93 meter long and 5000 DWT multipurpose offshore supply and construction vessel operated by Myklebusthaug Management.
Platform Support Vessel (PSV) Dina Star, delivered to Norwegian offshore owner Myklebusthaug Offshore by Kleven Yard in April 2013, is the first powered with ABB’s full Onboard DC grid system to provide fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
Dina Star with its Onboard DC Grid technology was nominated for the 2013 Energy Efficiency award at Nor-shipping. ABB is also granted Approval in Principle (AIP) from ABS for the Onboard DC Grid. Approval in principle confirms Onboard DC Grid’s suitability for marine application. The new system supports the growth of electrical propulsion systems onboard ships.
