MAN Rollo supplies twenty generator sets to De Hoop
Shipyard De Hoop is building ten Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) for the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC). These vessels will be deployed in the oil and gas fields of the United Arab Emirates.
The vessels are destined for ESNAAD (a subsidiary of ADNOC) and will be used primarily to provision the platforms. The vessels are being built and delivered in phases; the first delivery is planned for early 2015 and the last for the end of 2016.
According to Shipyard De Hoop, these 65-metre long, 15.80-metre wide vessels represent the next stage in the development of the PSV. ‘The shape of the hull below the waterline has been optimised to minimise resistance and the operational speed is 13 knots. The shape above the waterline is aerodynamic, which significantly reduces the load on the electrical system in DP mode.
MAN Rollo will supply 250 kW auxiliary generators for emergency and port use for each vessel. The development and construction of the generator sets is based on strict IMO level 2 environmental requirements and the sets are classified by Lloyds Register. The generator sets will be based on the MAN marine diesel engine range. MAN Rollo has teamed up with De Ruyter Dieseltechniek in Sliedrecht for this project. The production, supply and installation of the twenty generator sets will run in phases, parallel with the construction of the vessels. The first set was delivered at the end of 2014 and the last will be delivered at the end of 2016.
