GE to provide suite of marine technologies to deep-water dive support vessel





GE’s Marine Solutions division has been chosen by rescue and salvage company Shanghai Salvage Bureau (SSB) to provide power and propulsion equipment, dynamic positioning (DP) and automation and control systems to its newest deep-water dive support vessel (DSV).

The vessel will be powered by an electric power and propulsion system, including GE’s 4,656kW generators, switchboards and medium-voltage frequency drive propulsion controllers, as well as a vessel automation and control system. The main propulsion switchboard will be arranged in a closed-ring configuration.

The vessel will also feature GE’s SeaStream DP system (Class 3), which uses multidirectional thrusters and sensors to monitor real-time wind, current and wave conditions and automatically activate the propulsion units to counteract environmental forces.

Furthermore, the vessel will be able to call upon GE’s Ecomagination mode of operation, which uses algorithms to optimise vessel heading and the number of generators needed for operation.

“This vessel will be the best of its class anywhere in the world,” said Huang Yan, project director, SSB. ”The sophisticated electrical system, including an innovative closed-ring arrangement of the propulsion switchboard, is a top priority for us to achieve our design goals. Undoubtedly, reliability of the technology onboard the ship is of paramount importance, and that requires an experienced partner. We are pleased to work with GE to ensure that the deep-water DSV will be one of the most advanced of its kind in the world.”
