The series of four firm and two optional new generation heavy-lift vessels, one of the world’s most ambitious heavy-lift newbuilding projects called Orca Class, will be propelled by SCHOTTEL ControllablePropellers (SCP). The four-bladed controllable pitch propellers type SCP 129 will feature an input power of up to 8,810 kW and a propeller diameter of six metres. The contract has been signed with Wuhu Shipyard, China.
The series of four Commissioning Service Operation Vessels (CSOVs) built by the Norwegian VARD Group will be powered by full propulsion packages from SCHOTTEL. The package per vessel consists of two SCHOTTEL Dynamic RudderPropellers type SRP 460 D, one SCHOTTEL Retractable RudderPropeller type SRP 380 R, and two SCHOTTEL TransverseThrusters type STT 5. With these new vessels, Edda Wind, the Norwegian pure-play operator in the offshore wind industry, will significantly expand its fleet, especially given the option for 2+2 more ships in addition to the four ordered.
The largest SCHOTTEL EcoPeller ever manufactured was recently shipped from the Wismar production facility. The five-bladed SRE 700 features a propeller diameter of 3,600 mm and an input power of 3.2 MW. Thanks to its compact design, the integrated LE-Drive (“embedded L-Drive”) allows more freedom in vessel design. In addition to this, it offers extremely low vibration and noise levels. The thruster’s controllable pitch propeller enables efficiency increases by means of pitch adjustment. The delivered type also permits the full-feathering function, enabling the propeller blades to be moved to a low-resistance position if required.
The increased performance of the fast-responsive SCHOTTEL RudderPropeller Dynamic SRP-D has now also been confirmed by external sources. Initial investigations into the effect of thruster response on DP positioning were carried out in cooperation with MARIN, based in the Netherlands, and Polish ship designer MMC. The results obtained demonstrated much-improved position accuracy and enhanced operability of the vessel.
