Multi-Layer, Multi-Function

MAN supplies main gen-sets for construction vessel

Posted on August 5, 2013

MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply the main generator sets for a multi-layer vessel commenced by Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven AG for British client, Ceona. The Ceona Amazon will be equipped with 2 X 9L32/44CR+4 X 8L32/44CR main gen-sets, providing a 28 MW output.

Each engine will be constructed at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Augsburg production facility in southern Germany, and later transported to the company’s Frederikshavn, Denmark site for a full electrical test before the gen-sets’ delivery to the shipyard.

Based on a drillship design, the Ceona Amazon is a multi-functional, dynamically-positioned, construction vessel suited for operations in remote and challenging locations.

The vessel is fitted with two heave-compensated masthead cranes, and a single heave-compensated knuckleboom crane. The pipe lay system consists of an inclined lay system and a rigid, pipeline firing-line system. The vessel can lay rigid pipelines, flexible pipelines and umbilicals, and can install large, subsea structures using one or both of its cranes in tandem-lift mode to 3000 m depth. It doesn’t require a spool base to support its operations and can be remotely operated.
