Scana Propulsion to supply propulsion systems for type SALT 100 PSV for shipowners Ugland
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
Direct-driven counter-rotating propellers with constant protection against
external damage makes the system more efficient and reliable compared to a
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
"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.
