The Dolphin system has been devel- oped for power ranges extending from 3
MW to more than 19 MW, and is suit- able for a variety of vessels designed for high speed and good maneuverability operation. The standard drive of the fixed-pitch propeller includes air-cooled six-phase synchronous motor.
In addition to Dolphin, the focus of the delivery by STN Atlas and John Crane-
Lips for Seven Seas Voyager also includes a complete propulsion system with synchro-converters, control and joystick system, diesel alternators and a high-voltage distribution assembly with propulsion and main transformers as well as bowthrusters.

Siemens To Supply Fuel Cell
The Siemens Industrial Solutions and
Services Group (I&S) has been con- tracted to supply the most updated
Siemens Permasyn electric motor. propulsion and automation systems (Nautos) for a trio of new submarines to be built for the Greek Navy for delivery between 2005 and 2008. The $35.5 mil- lion contract features propulsion sys- tems that will include Permasyn perma- nent-field electric motors and PEM Fuel cells (polymer electrolyte membrane) as power sources. Howaldtswerke-
Deutsche Werft (HDW) has been grant- ed a contract to supply the Greek Navy with three type U 214 submarines. The first will be constructed at HDW; the remainder will be built at the Greek and
Hellenic Shipyards Co. The submarines will be powered by Siemens Permasyn electric motors - permanently synchro- nous machines suitable for a DC power supply that are very low signatures, compact and easy to operate. PEM fuel cells as AIP systems (air independent propulsion), will power the submarines when submerged. The AIP system is produced by HDW with Siemens pro- viding the fuel cell modules and the supervisory systems.
