ABB will supply its onboard
motion monitoring and forecasting system to the Xiang Rui Kou heavy lift vessel,
meaning the entire fleet of Cosco Heavy Transport now benefits from the
The electric propulsion is a feasible solution for semi-sub heavy lift vessel design. This is supported by limitations in engine locations, long power transfer distances and large ballast water capacity. Download the whitepaper to learn more
A breakthrough of integrated power, propulsion and automation systems for better energy efficiency.
In the electric drive dredging concept, a number of diesel engines are running generators that supply electrical power to the main switchboards to which all consumers are connected. The electric dredger system consists of power plant (include diesel-genset and main switchboard), supply transformers and frequency converters, and a set of dredger related consumers,dredger drives control unit and remote control system and optional diagnostics system.The dredger related consumers include but not limited to following equipments:−− Dredger pump motor−− Jet pump motor−− Cutter motor−− Underwater pump−− Seal water pump motor
Semi-submersible heavy lift vessels have special requirements that make electric propulsion an attractive alternative compared to conventional diesel-mechanic solution. These requirements include for example dynamic positioning, redundancy, and machinery location, space and weight restrictions.ABB offers electric power plant alternatives including both traditional AC and new Onboard DC Grid solutions for different propeller and thruster alternatives such as Azipod® C thrusters, shaftline propulsion and mechanical thrusters.
Vessels working in harbour areas and close to coastlines face environmental pressure from land-based communities, and in tugs working further from land increased fuel costs increases focus on efficient operational designs.With our electrical propulsion systems, combined with hybrid storage solutions, we can help meet both these challenges, as well as ensuring your vessels are optimizing performance and fuel savings.
Special purpose vessels are designed for a very specific mission and normally they require high levels of reliability and availability.Examples are: pipe layers, windmill installation vessels, heavy lift floating cranes, etc. Very often these vessels push the boundaries of operational capability to an extent that requires the introduction of new technology, which requires a combination of competence, experience and out-of-the box thinking.ABB has a considerable experience in supplying electrical systems for special applications, whether its power generation and distribution, electrical propulsion process automation systems or advisory systems
