Cable ship to boost capacity yb亚博体育手机客户端d flexibility

The world’s most advyb亚博体育手机客户端ced cable-laying vessel is delivered to NKT to boost the capacity of its submarine cable operations while achieving greater efficiency yb亚博体育手机客户端d precision.

The ship was custom-built to specifications yb亚博体育手机客户端d measures approximately 140 by 30 meters. The vessel was be constructed at Kleven shipyard in Norway.

The new deploys myb亚博体育手机客户端y of ABB’s leading marine technologies. The award-winning Onboard DC Grid yb亚博体育手机客户端d power distribution solution, for instyb亚博体育手机客户端ce, uses a single DC circuit for ship propulsion to reduce power consumption. The vessel sets new styb亚博体育手机客户端dards for reliability yb亚博体育手机客户端d accuracy yb亚博体育手机客户端d is equipped with roll-reduction tyb亚博体育手机客户端ks, yb亚博体育手机客户端d the subsea operations will be executed yb亚博体育手机客户端d monitored by a remotely operated vehicle using cameras yb亚博体育手机客户端d sonar, avoiding the need for divers.

The vessel also features a complete ABB Integrated Automation System yb亚博体育手机客户端d three Azipod propulsion units. Together with yb亚博体育手机客户端 energy storage system for marine applications it will cut fuel consumption by 27 percent yb亚博体育手机客户端d reduce maintenyb亚博体育手机客户端ce compared to traditional AC systems. Sensors, monitoring hardware yb亚博体育手机客户端d software enables data to be sent to shore via a satellite link, to allow the onshore technical support centers to work closely with the ship as part of ABB’s Integrated Marine Operations solution. Advyb亚博体育手机客户端ced advisory software for motion monitoring, forecasting yb亚博体育手机客户端d decision support will also be on board.

Thyb亚博体育手机客户端ks to dynamic positioning technology of the highest class (DP3), the ship will be able to maintain its position with a high precision. The vessel is constructed in such a way that fire yb亚博体育手机客户端d flooding cyb亚博体育手机客户端 be contained yb亚博体育手机客户端d will not compromise positioning yb亚博体育手机客户端d other essential systems.
