Alewijnse Marine Systems has successfully completed the electrical conversion of the jack-up rig 'Atlantic Amsterdam'.

The Atlantic Amsterdam has spent the last nine months at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen being converted from a drilling rig to offshore hotel accommodation by Nordica Offshore Pte, Ltd. Alewijnse was responsible for the supply, installation, integration and commissioning of a number of critical electrical systems.

The Atlantic Amsterdam, formerly called Shelf Explorer, is owned by Atlantic Amsterdam Pte. Ltd. of Singapore, a subsidiary of Ezion Holdings Ltd. Lead contractor Nordica Offshore chose Alewijnse Marine Systems, which has a permanent representation at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen, for the electrical conversion of a number of important systems.

Alewijnse worked on a number of important systems on each rig including the conversion and engineering of several 600/440/220V electrical distribution systems, along with the installation of an emergency shutdown (ESD) system.

Other installations included a completely new alarm system, back-up UPS facilities, a convertor with distribution panel for the new welding shop, life boat davits, deck and emergency lighting and various systems for the machinery deck. As well as those, a new jack-up alarm and monitoring system was installed to give a clear overview of the operational status of the motors, overloads and breakers.

Alewijnse also delivered and installed a number of new electrical infrastructure components including the panels and transformers for a range of new equipment that includes boilers, HVAC, galley and laundry facilities, lighting distribution with emergency supply and sewage plants. Alewijnse also performed additional critical support activities including overall system commissioning.
