WE Tech has received a new order from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in South Korea to deliver its Economical Operations solution with Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator to a series of four 174k cbm LNG carriers for the Norwegian shipowner Knutsen OAS Shipping. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered to the shipyard commencing in June 2022.
The delivery package includes two sets of Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generators, variable speed frequency drives, cooling units and transformers. The Economical Operations solution with WE Drive supplies the vessels electrical power distribution from shaft generators allowing for the auxiliary generators to be stopped, therefore substantial fuel and maintenance costs can be saved.
