Touch screen overview of consumed & available power
Built in 1995, the 3,716 gross tonnage chemical tanker Stolt Razorbill saw its entire power control and monitoring system retrofitted late in 2015.
Resulting in full bus tie breaker (BTB) control and based on DEIF's PPM 300 and ECU 100 controllers, the new power management system controls two auxiliary engines, one shaft generator and one emergency generator.
The redesigned switchboards are equipped with current transformers for BTBs, current relays for gensets and AC transducers for the power packs that provide hydraulic pressure for equipment on deck.
Completing the system revamp, an AGI touch screen solution was mounted in the cargo control room, offering a full overview of consumed and available power along with plant overviews indicating genset and BTB states.
We're planning to install similar solutions on a range of other vessels in our fleet, Sean Crowly from Stolt-Nielsen ends.
