DBR has delivered the last units of a substantial order totalling 42 marine generator sets for Damen Shipyards Gorinchem. The generator sets will be installed on 14 ASD tugs that Damen is building at its Galaţi yard in Romania for a project in the Middle East.
“We are very pleased to have completed delivery for Damen. Our engineers are currently executing commissioning and start-up works in Romania,” says DBR Managing Director Herwin Roodenburg. “This final part of the contract is running on schedule and is due for completion at the end of this year.”
DBR performed the design and engineering work for the whole contract. “The generator sets are executed with double bearing generators and are started by compressed air,” explains Mr Roodenburg. “The design characteristics will allow the tugs to operate effectively in harsh environmental conditions where ambient working temperatures can reach 65°C.”
