'Orion' - DEME

Bakker Sliedrecht has engineered, delivered, and commissioned the main electrical power package of the offshore installation vessel Orion. The DP3 vessel features an unrivaled combination of exceptionally high transport and load capacity, impressive lifting heights, and green technology. The vessel is built at COSCO Qidong in China. Orion will be deployed by DEME’s subsidiary GeoSea for the construction of the largest offshore wind farms and deliver offshore construction services.

Empowering the first next generation offshore installation vessel

With a total installed electrical power of 44,180 kW, ‘Orion’ is equipped with a high-tech crane with lifting capacity of 3,000 tonnes at more than 50 meters. The loads can be lifted to an unrivaled height of more than 170 m. Deck space is maximized to provide exceptionally high transport and load capacity. The vessel can take the heaviest monopiles, jackets, wind turbine components and structures in a single shipment. With this unmatched combination of high load and lifting capacity, ‘Orion’ can transport and install the next generation of giant multi-megawatt wind turbines.

Powerful ABB ACS 880 low voltage multi-drive systems

The Orion is equipped with the brand-new ABB ACS 880 liquid-cooled low voltage multidrive system. The new model of ABB has a very high power density, yielding a lot of power out of a small footprint. The ABB ACS 880 is maintenance friendly and already compliant with future regulations.
