High demand for efficient propulsion, manoeuvring and positioning
The operational demands of a Live Fish Carrier is represented by varying working conditions requiring flexible solutions to execute all tasks efficiently.
Activities varies from transit to a range of different operations, with varying power requirements.
Brunvoll has been a long term supplier to the segment, supplying thrusters and propulsion systems with solutions for increased efficiency, reduced fuel consumption and low maintenance cost.
With need for widely different propulsion power, a 2-speed gearbox, CP-propeller, diesel engine and shaft generator can be the right answer.
The integration of propulsion and manoeuvring with BruCon control, joystick and DP-system further ensures easy manoeuvring and positioning.
In a 2-speed gearbox system the diesel power can be distributed partly to the propeller at the selected optimum propeller speed, and partly to the generator running at constant speed supplying electricity to the machinery for water treatment in fish tanks during transport. Running in step 2 gives an energy efficient and sustainable operation.
The options for electric and hybrid systems are many;
