WE Tech solutions has received a new order to deliver its Economical Operations Solution to a series of two 86,000 cbm LPG carriers. The vessels are to be built for the Japanese shipping company NYK Line at Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan. The Contract was facilitated by The China & Japan Marine Industries Limited. The equipment delivery from WE Tech will commence in January 2023.
The Economical Operations Solution package includes the Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator and a WE Drive. The solution delivers the highest electrical efficiency available on the market, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and reduced emissions for optimal environmental sustainability.
“Our solution will bring significant savings in terms of operation performance and fuel consumption. With reduced fuel consumption the environmental footprint will also be reduced. We are proud to contribute to a sustainable future of shipping.” said Mr Martin Andtfolk, Sales Manager of WE Tech Solutions.
In Power Take Out (PTO) mode, the vessel’s electrical power will be supplied from the Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator via the WE Drive and thus the Auxiliary Generators can be stopped. Significant savings in fuel cost is achieved from electrical power generation by the slow speed Main Engine which has far better efficiency in comparison to the Auxiliary Generator sets. Further savings are achieved by reduced operating hours and hence significantly reduced need for maintenance of Auxiliary Generators.
