节省大量能源,船员十分满意

凭借船上的升级 Delomatic 4,Seven Viking 将为航运业的美好未来做出重大贡献

合同遵守以及 HES 与升级的 Delomatic 4 功率管理系统的集成

为确保继续遵守客户合同,挪威船运公司 Eidesvik 升级了 IMR 船舶 Seven Viking 上的 Delomatic 4 功率管理系统 (PMS),以处理新的船上 HES(混合能源存储)系统。Eidesvik 着手显著减少燃油和发电机组的运行小时数,船员对该解决方案十分满意。

当最大的客户之一更改合同条款时,如果要留住该客户,则需要确保继续遵守合同约定。挪威航运公司 Eidesvik 在 2018 年就遇到了这种情况。为减少海上活动产生的燃油消耗和碳排放,石油公司 Equinor 提出了一项要求,即供应商 IMR 必须配备船上 HES(混合能源存储)系统,才能符合特定的框架合同要求。 

因此,i-Tech 7、Subsea 7 的现场作业业务部门和 Eidesvik 需要升级在北海运营的 IMR 船舶 Seven Viking。“根据客户合同的要求,船舶必须装有混合电源。”Eidesvik 项目经理 Alf Magne Simonsen 表示。

Eidesvik 的总部位于挪威的 Langevåg,拥有并运营船舶,涉及的业务领域包括供电、地震、海上风力以及海底领域,主要活动在挪威大陆架。Eidesvik 拥有并运营 22 艘船舶;Seven Viking 目前租给 i-Tech 7,用于进行海底现场作业。两家公司均向 Equinor 提供服务,并共同合作使 Seven Viking 符合更新的合同条款。

升级 Delomatic 4 以进行 HES 管理

Seven Viking 于 2012 年在挪威的 Ulstein Verft 造船厂建造,配备了 DEIF 的船载 Delomatic 4 PMS。该系统能够执行所有常规 PMS 操作,同时还为基于闭合总线的 DP-2 操作实现了防断电和 FMEA 要求。安装新的 HES 系统后,需要对 Delomatic 4 进行升级,以管理和控制混合电源解决方案。

Delomatic 4 系统扩展了必要的硬件和软件,以符合 HES 系统的要求。控制器的数量从 4 个增加到 7 个。该软件已在 DEIF 仿真工具中进行了预测试,然后由一位经验丰富并掌握必要专业知识的 DEIF 工程师完成调试,以取得 DNV GL 电池电量等级标记证书。

培训和能力至关重要

Alf Magne Simonsen 强调,成功完成升级项目不仅仅是技术问题。“Eidesvik 是电池混合解决方案的早期采用者;我们以创新而闻名。”他说道。“同样,升级成功的关键在于船员的能力,因为技术是全新的。”如果不具备所需的专业知识,船员将无法充分利用先进系统(例如升级后的 Delomatic 4)提供的功能,他们也将无法获得此类系统可实现的经济和环境效益。因此,DEIF 交付、安装和调试 Delomatic 4 升级时,对关键船员的培训至关重要。

“Even though we have only used the battery hybrid solution for a short while, we estimate that we will be able to save 12-13% on fuel consumption. Furthermore, we expect to reduce genset operating hours by approx. 35%”

Significant savings and happy crews

In early January 2019, the upgraded Seven Viking was put to sea, carrying out operations for i-Tech 7. Although the vessel has not been operational for long with the upgraded PMS and HES solution, Alf Magne Simonsen estimates that Eidesvik are set to achieve significant savings on fuel and genset running hours.

“Even though we have only used the battery hybrid solution for a short while, we estimate that we will be able to save 12-13% on fuel consumption. Furthermore, we expect to reduce genset operating hours by approx. 35%”, he says. The reduction of genset running hours is possible because the Seven Viking will often be able to run on one engine instead of two in DP-2 operations, and sometimes two engines instead of four.

Equally importantly, the people who use the system every day are satisfied. “The crew is happy with the solution. As they become familiar and gain confidence in the upgraded system, operational savings will improve even more,” says Alf Magne Simonsen. He is happy with the way the project was carried out, and with the expertise of the DEIF team delivering the upgrade.

“It has been a pleasure working with DEIF, and we now have a well-functioning solution for a complex installation thanks also to the competent project team from DEIF,” he concludes.

With the upgraded Delomatic 4 on board, the Seven Viking is making a significant contribution to a brighter future for shipping – and in general - with reduced fuel consumption and carbon emissions; in line with Equinor contract terms – and for the benefit of the climate.
