Bakker Sliedrecht takes care of electrical system integration on board Damen’s Service Operations Vessel

29 February 2016

Damen Shipyards Group ordered Bakker Sliedrecht to supply and integrate all main electrical installations of the Damen Service Operations Vessel (SOV). 

It is the first vessel purpose-built for the transfer and accommodation of offshore personnel and aims to maximize working time and staff retention.  In line with wind farms being constructed farther from shore, the SOV with walk-to-work access is able to remain at sea for periods up to one month. The design guarantees fast, safe and comfortable access to turbines, at lower cost.

Bibby Marine Services Limited, part of Bibby Line Group, signed a contract with the Damen Shipyards Group for delivery of its first Service Operations Vessel. The vessel, Bibby WaveMaster 1, will undertake offshore wind project work in the North Sea.

Responsible for all main electrical installations

Bakker Sliedrecht is responsible for the supply and integration of all main electrical installations of Damen’s SOV. Key elements of this project are the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of the main switchboard, two auxiliary switchboards and three drive systems. All drive systems will be equipped with an active filter that saves space on board and creates a clean power supply by eliminating harmonic distortion.

Bakker Sliedrecht will also take care of the design and installation of the complete cabling on board the SOV. We will commission the SOV’s electrical installations at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania.

BIMAC Vessel management system

The SOV will be equipped with Bakker Sliedrecht’s Vessel management system BIMAC. Bakker Sliedrecht developed BIMAC especially for marine applications. The user friendly vessel management system manages all main and auxiliary functions of the SOV.
