New Order From Royal Bodewes For Hybrid Eco Traders
In the second week of December, we received a new order for two 9300 DWAT Hybrid Eco Traders from Royal Bodewes. The ships are scheduled to be built in 2021 and 2022.
These vessels are intended for general cargo transport and make use of a hybrid propulsion system. This type of system makes it possible to use a shaft generator to drive the propeller during maneuvers with Power Take In (PTI). The shaft generator acts as an electric motor, receiving its power from a battery pack in the engine room. When the main engine is in operation, the battery pack can be recharged using Power Take Off (PTO).
We provide the following activities for this project:
- Piping system design;
- Detailed engineering with 3D modeling;
- Procurement of equipment, valves and instrumentation;
- Piping prefabrication;
- On board tubing installation;
- Piping systems commissioning.
We are happy to be working on this new project in the northern Netherlands and to continue our close collaboration with Royal Bodewes.
