DBR providing gensets for six new pipelay vessels

logoDutch manufacturer DBR BV will supply emergency/harbor diesel generator sets for six new pipelaying vessels under construction at IHC Merwede in the Netherlands for Subsea 7 and SapuraKencana. The order for the custom-engineered units, generating up to 1875 kVA, follows DBR’s successful delivery of three similar generator sets for IHC Merwede in 2013. 

“We are very pleased that our work last year has resulted in this large new repeat order from our client IHC Merwede,” notes DBR Managing Director Herwin Roodenburg.
“These are custom-built units, completely engineered to client specifications and for operating safely and reliably in Brazilian waters.” 

For each of the six new generator sets, DBR selected Mitsubishi diesel engines and either 800 kVA Leroy Somer or 1875 kVA AvK generators. The delivery includes cooler and control panels, and the units can operate in air temperatures up to 50ºC. DBR will engineer the equipment to Lloyd’s Register and IMO-2 specifications. The first of the six new generator sets was successfully FAT-tested at DBR’s test bench and has already been delivered, earlier this year. Deliveries of the next custom-built units will continue in 2014 and 2015. 

Based in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands, DBR provides customized power supply solutions for ships, offshore platforms and onshore applications.
