Press Release
Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Scana Propulsion to supply propulsion systems for type SALT 100 PSV for shipowners Ugland
 Offshore.

The vessel is designed by Salt Ship Design and the propeller system is
developed in partnership between Salt Ship Design and Scana Propulsion. The 
system is a counter-rotating propeller system (CRP) with two propellers driven
by permanent-magnet motors that rotate independently of each other in the same
 shaft line. Reliability and fuel efficiency has been the philosophy of this 
concept.


Direct-driven counter-rotating propellers with constant protection against 
external damage makes the system more efficient and reliable compared to a
 conventional system.

The compact propulsion system also enables a more efficient
shape of the stern, and in total it gives significantly improved efficiency with 
lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions of greenhouse gases.

The delivery from Scana consists of propellers and engines and provides a total
power of 4,000 kW.

The contract, worth 40 mill NOK includes an option for one additional
 vessel.

"Scana sees the order as strategically very important. This new concept gives it an 
exciting foothold in the PSV market, and provides a significant increase in
 Scanas market potential for propulsion systems for the offshore market", says
 Group director Scana Propulsion, Kristian Saetre.
