ABB to power the world’s largest diamond recovery vessel for De Beers
ABB wins contract from Damen Shipyards Group to deliver an advanced power system for the world's first custom-built diamond recovery vessel. The newbuild will be delivered to Debmarine Namibia, a joint venture between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and De Beers Group in 2022. An online double-conversion marine uninterruptible power supply (MUPS) will support vital control processes. ABB's MUPS is designed for undisrupted availability, ensuring power backup for the vessel's onboard control systems.
