Alstom Diesel Electric Solution Selected by Otto Candies

Monday, October 28, 2002
Alstom won contract to supply electrical systems for a vessel being built for Otto Candies by the de Hoop shipyard in the Netherlands. The order includes a simplex dynamic positioning (DP) system from Altsom's 'A' series, plus manual thrusters controls and an independent joystick, for the NB400 offshore support vessel for Otto Candies, which is to be built at the Dutch shipyard.

This DP order comes on the back of an earlier contract for the same vessel, to supply variable speed drives from Alstom's MV3000 liquid cooled range, plus transformers and motors for the two main 900kW azimuth thrusters.

Two of Otto Candies' diving support vessels built by de Hoop - Caballo de Mar and Caballo de Trabajo - are now in service, having been fitted with Alstom duplex dynamic positioning and electric propulsion equipment.

Alstom is also supplying similar equipment for Otto Candies vessels to be built at Houma Fabricators-Shipyard de Hoop in Louisiana and the Bender Shipbuilding and Repair Company in Mobile, Alabama.

"Otto Candies is among the growing number of vessel operators realizing the benefits that a diesel electric solution brings, such as fuel efficiency and installation flexibility," said Paul English, Offshore Sales Manager. "The combination of our new liquid cooled marine drives and DP systems is proving to be an economical alternative in the highly competitive market of work boats and Platform Supply Vessels."
