SES Electrical Sees Bright Future

Sustained interest in diesel-electric propulsion and advanced power generation solutions for smaller ships is reflected in the projects completed or planned in the past year by Bergenbased Scandinavian Electric Systems (SES). Typifying the wide scope of SES' capabilities is a system due for delivery in the first half of 2003 for a DNV-classed, dynamically-positioned, seismic vessel for Volstad Shipping, Norway. SES was assigned to execute a complete study, engineering, harmonic calculations and commissioning of a 690V/60Hz installation embracing the following main elements: two 3,450kVA/720 rpm water-cooled IP54 generators; two 2,000kVA/900 rpm water-cooled IP54 generators; two compass thruster drive motors (each 2,000kW S1 1,800 rpm) with AC drives; one propulsion motor (2,500kW SI 1,200 rpm) with AC drive; and one side thruster motor (2,000kW VI SI 900 rpm).

Among significant current commitments at SES is a system for a tanker building in Turkey for the Turkish owner Furtrans.

Due for delivery in March 2003, the DNV-classed installation will embrace a combined diesel-electric and take-mehome power solution (based on a 660kW/1,200 rpm IP23 AC motor and AC-inverter active front- end drive) and a 400kVA/1,800 rpm generator serving one shaft line.
