ALSTOM Wins $102M Navy Deal

Monday, October 25, 2004
ALSTOM has won a second order of around $102 million to supply an integrated electric power and propulsion system for the Royal Navy’s Anti-Air Warfare Type 45 Destroyers. Following on from the first contract in April 2001 for batch one, this order is for batch two vessels and was awarded by BAE Systems Type 45 Destroyer Prime Contract Office. The order for the integrated electric power and propulsion system also includes the supply of major items of equipment including: 21 MWe alternators, 2MW diesel generator sets, HV switchboard, service transformers, VDM25000 PWM drives, 20MW 15 phased advanced induction motors (AIM), harmonic filters and the electrical power management system. Integrated electric power and propulsion offers the potential benefits for through-life cost, reduced maintenance and greater operational flexibility. The T45 vessels will be the first front-line warships in the Royal Navy to have this type of system which has undergone successful extensive testing at ALSTOM’s Electric Ship Technology Demonstrator (ESTD) in Whetstone, near Leicester, U.K., as well as being the first-of-class propulsion converters and advanced induction motors tested in back to back configuration.
