WE Tech to supply package for Donsotank tankers
WE Tech Solutions, a leading energy efficiency solution provider, has received an order to supply an integrated propulsion package for two 22,000 dwt newbuilding chemical and product tankers with an option for another two. The vessels, which are being constructed for Swedish ship owner Donsotank, are due to be delivered in 2021.
The package, which includes Propulsion Drives, Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator, Shore Connection Switchgear, Bow Thruster Motor and DC Link, will be supplied to Wuhu Shipyard Co., where the vessels will be built.
WE Tech’s equipment delivery to Wuhu Shipyard will commence in April 2020.
“WE Tech is proud to be a pioneer to supply the most energy efficient solutions. We, as well as our customers, strongly believe that our innovative technology and reliable solutions are the future for the marine industry”, says Peter Lindström, Sales Manager of WE Tech Solutions.
WE Tech’s solution is based on variable frequency drive technology (WE Drive) and includes a Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator/Motor. In addition to offering lower fuel and operational costs while sailing, the solution also offers an efficient method to distribute power to bow thrusters and cargo handling system of the tankers.
The solution also allows the use of cleaner shore power or cold ironing. WE Tech also notes that WE Drive can condition any available voltage and frequency, ensuring the tankers’ electrical system is unaffected by various national power grids.
The vessels feature a dual-fuel LNG-fuelled propulsion system, and are designed to accommodate a 1,000 kWh battery-pack.
