Parat Halvorsen Awarded Boiler Plant Contract

Press Release
Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Parat Halvorsen has been awarded a new boiler plant contract by Kleven Maritime.
The ship will be built at Kleven Verft AS, NB 357, and is of Marine Teknikk design MT 6015, which is a combined Platform Supply- and Sub Sea construction vessel. The ship will be delivered to the owner, Myklebusthaug Management, in February, 2013.
The Parat boiler plant consists of an electric 1250kW boiler, including heat recovery exchangers for various water consumers, and a complete system, including steam injection lances for ORO/OSR mobilization, which is a necessary part to meet and satisfy NOFO’s demands and regulations.
The boiler will be powered on direct current voltage and not alternating current, which has been the standard solution. Many leaders within the industry argue that DC power distribution on board a ship will eliminate the problem with reactive power. This new technology is expected to lead to a reduction in fuel consumption of 10 percent to 20 percent, depending on operational profile.
