Major modification for MV Baltic with electrical installation of Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology
May 5, 2020: MV Baltic is the first in a series of Ro/Ro vessels built in 2017 by Hartman Marine Shipbuilding as build nr 009. Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology was responsible for the complete electrical outfitting and integration of the alarm and monitoring system.
MV Baltic is currently being sold to Eidsvaag A/S and will be converted into a self-discharging fish feed carrier. Hartman Marine Shipbuilding will be responsible for the complete refit process and Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology will take care of the electrical installation.
The vessel will be equipped with two extra DP thrusters, a discharging excavator and discharging belts and elevators. To supply power to all this new equipment, three extra generators will be installed with a 1600 kW distribution panel. The goal is to keep the existing electrical installation in its original state to steer and move the vessel, while the new distribution network is used for loading and unloading. A coupling will be installed between these two networks for redundancy purposes and low-load applications.
The modification of MV Baltic is a major project with a challenging time scale. However, as our engineers and installation team are already familiar with Hartman and MV Baltic, everything is in place to complete this job and deliver to Eidsvaag.
Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has a long-term relationship with Hartman Marine Shipbuilding and has installed all new builds since number 001 MV Deo-Volente in 2007. We also have extensive experience in refitting seagoing vessels.
