Bakker Sliedrecht Equips Bibby WaveMaster 1 with Main Electrical System
Bakker Sliedrecht, which will provide the main electrical power package for GeoSea’s offshore wind installation vessel Orion, informed today that it had delivered the main electrical installations for Bibby WaveMaster 1 Service Operations Vessel (SOV).
The company was responsible for the supply and integration of all main electrical installations, including the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of the main switchboard, two auxiliary switchboards and three drive systems.
All drive systems are equipped with an active filter that saves space on board and creates a clean power supply by eliminating harmonic distortion, Bakker Sliedrecht said. The company added that it took care of the design and installation of the complete cabling on board the SOV, and the equipment of all suppliers was plotted into an integrated 3D model to ensure a smooth installation.
Bakker Sliedrecht also installed its vessel management system BIMAC onboard the Bibby WaveMaster 1. The system, developed especially for marine applications, manages all main and auxiliary functions of the Bibby WaveMaster 1.
Meanwhile, the SOV is working for James Fisher Marine Services at the Galloper offshore wind farm, supporting construction works with options to extend to support the offshore commissioning phase of the works.
