High efficiency with Brunvoll Hybrid Propulsion and Automation Systems

Congratulations to Aas Mek. Verksted AS, Færøy AS, North Salmon Service AS and the Crew with the brand new live fish carrier "Færøysund".

Through a close dialogue with the shipowner and the design company, we define needs, requirements and design criteria for the optimum propulsion system adapted to the operating profile of the vessel.

Congratulations to "Færøysund"

We congratulate Aas Mekaniske Verksted, Færøy, North Salmon Service and the Crew with the brand new live fish carrier "Færøysund".

Thank you for choosing Brunvoll!

We are proud to announce that «Færøysund» is equipped with

  • Brunvoll hybrid propulsion system, a system consisting of CP propeller and reduction gear. The system is driven by two PM motors (Permanent magnet motors), four gensets and battery pack.
  • Brunvoll tunnel thrusters
  • Brunvoll Propulsion and Thruster Controls with DP & Joystick System
Diesel-elektrisk batteri 3xTT

Hybrid propulsion suits very well the operating profile of a live fish carrier

Jonny Hansen, co-owner and technical manager at North Salmon Service AS, sees the value of the hybrid propulsion system due to variations in the operating profile.

«We wanted a hybrid system as we spend long periods by the cage with need for electricity to perform our work. It is then an advantage to have electric operation including batteries. With four gensets we can overhaul one engine during sailing. We may also use the battery for peak shaving and thus avoid starting an extra engine. This gives us flexibility and saves start-ups and running hours of the gensets", says Hansen.  

"The «Færøysund» system is a typical modern hybrid propulsion system for energy efficiency. We see an increasing interest for hybrid systems, due to the possibility for reduction in fuel consumption by optimising the utilisation of different energy sources to the vessels operating condition", comments Geir-Arne Kaspersen, VP Sales at Brunvoll.

Dynamic Positioning (DP-System)

DP has traditionally been widely used in offshore, but it also seems to be well on its way into aquaculture and fishing. "Færøysund" is equipped with Brunvoll DP-system.

«When working close to large cages in exposed waters, we have to stay 8-10 meters from the cage during loading and unloading. During such working conditions, there is a need for DP system to keep the vessel in place in rough seas», says Jonny Hansen, in North Salmon Service. He believes that anyone who wants to operate in more exposed areas will need a DP system.  

Brunvoll DP is a fully integrated part of the BruCon automation platform. It is a compact system, easy to integrate into most vessel types.
