Our wide range of customized systems are central in optimising the ship for her main operating conditions
The focus is today about building and operating the most environmentally friendly vessels, whether it is for offshore wind or for purposes tied to other offshore facilities.
Many of the vessels are equipped with battery-electric or battery-hybrid propulsion systems for optimum energy savings.
Brunvoll continue developing energy-efficient propulsion and thruster solutions, and systems for automated positioning and voyages. In this way our customers obtain reduced costs, reduced energy consumption and reduced emission to air and sea.
A hybrid propulsion system based on diesel/gas, electric and batteries offers offshore vessels the perfect system to meet the wide variety in operation modes and operations in harsh offshore sea conditions.
The system flexibility from an efficient propulsion system, unmatched manoeuvring capabilities, and high redundancy are essential to ensure safe operation of the vessel.
An electric propulsion system can be powered by generator sets, driven by diesel or dual-fuel engines, or from the installed battery package. The batteries ensure a dynamic system with possibilities for electric running mode powered by batteries, for peak shaving, and in general increased system redundancy. A diesel-electric-battery hybrid system can also lower the running hours of the power machinery and reduce maintenance costs.
An efficient heavy duty propulsion system ideal for vessels with requirement for high bollard pull in towing or pushing operations.
Typical ship types are cable laying vessels, SOVs, tugs and other vessels with requirements to a combination of transit and DP operations.
Numerous offshore vessels, like AHTS, PSV, Cable Laying Vessels (CLV's), Construction vessels and others have chosen Brunvoll for their propulsion, manoeuvring and control systems, due to efficiency, quality, reliability and service capabilities.
Long experience and close relations with demanding shipowners, designers and shipyards within the offshore segment, has given us first-hand knowledge of new developments and strict requirements applying to vessel designs, and how to fulfil the obligations of each vessel when it comes to propulsion and manoeuvring.
