December 9, 2020: Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has delivered the electrical system for the self-unloading fish feed carrier Eidsvaag Omega (formerly MV Baltic hull number 009). Launched in 2017, MV Baltic was the first in a series of three Ro/Ro vessels built by Hartman Marine Shipbuilding. Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology was also responsible for the complete electrical installation and integration of the alarm and monitoring system at the time.
MV Baltic was sold to Eidsvaag A/S in 2019 and converted into a self-unloading fish feed carrier in which Hartman was responsible for realising the complete project and Piet Brouwer took on the task of supplying the electrical system. The vessel was equipped with two extra DP thrusters, an electrical discharging excavator for loading and unloading plus accompanying transport belts and unloading system. Piet Brouwer also installed three extra generators with a 1600 kW distribution panel to power the new equipment.
The original condition of the initial electrical system was preserved as much as possible during these activities, and used to control and move the vessel. The new distribution network will be used for loading and unloading work. A link between both networks was realised for redundancy and low load applications.
Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has been working with Hartman Marine Shipbuilding for many years, installing electrical systems on all new-build projects since hull number 001 MV Deo-Volente in 2007.
