Norway: Parat Halvorsen to Supply Boiler Plant for Kleven’s Newbuild NB 357
Parat Halvorsen has been awarded with a new boiler plant contract with Kleven Maritime. The ship will be built at Kleven Verft AS, NB 357, and is of Marine Teknikk design MT 6015 which is a combined Plattform Supply- and Sub Sea construction vessel. The ship will be delivered to owner Myklebusthaug Management in February 2013.
The Parat boiler plant consists of an electric 1250kW boiler including heat recovery exchangers for various water consumers and a complete system, including steam injection lances for ORO/OSR mobilization, which is a necessary key part to meet and satisfy NOFO’s demands and regulations.
The most challenging within Parat’s scope of delivery is that the boiler shall be powered on direct current voltage and not alternating current that has been the standard solution. Many leaders within the industry argue that DC power distribution on board a ship will eliminate the problem with reactive power, and save energy as the generator engines not are dependent on running at a fixed speed regardless of power outlet. This new technology is expected to lead to a reduction in fuel consumption between 10-20%, depending on operational profile.
