Siemens To Supply Full Electrical System For New Research Vessel

The contract to install a complete electrical system onboard the new ocean research ship being built for the Royal Norwegian Defense Research Institute has been awarded to the Siemens Marine Department, Bergen, Norway. The contract was awarded to Siemens, one of the world's leading vendors of electrical marine systems, by the Langstern Slip og Baatbyggeri A/S, shipyard of Tomrefjord, Norway.

Siemens was selected for the project because of the electromagnetic compatibility of its system. The contract includes supply and services for the propulsion and automation system; navigation and communication equipment; the ship's commissioning; and the delivery of a new version of the successful SIMATIC automation system.

The research vessel's propulsion concept is based on high voltage generators and DC motors with thyristor rectifiers in the mega watts range.
