The Switch received another order to deliver two PM shaft generators to WE Tech Solutions of Finland.

At the end of February 2015, WE Tech Solutions placed another order for two PMM 1000 M shaft generators from The Switch with the option for an additional two to be used in future WE Tech Solutions projects. WE Tech Solutions utilizes the PM machine both as generator and motor in their direct-drive permanent magnet shaft generator solution. The solutions will be delivered by WE Tech to Besiktas Shipyard in Turkey for installation in two 15100 DWT asphalt carrier new buildings recently ordered by Canadian ship owner Transport Desgagnés.

“The primary driver for Besiktas Shipyard to select our direct-drive permanent magnet shaft generator solution is because of the high energy efficiency that this solution provides,” says Mårten Storbacka, Managing Director of WE Tech Solutions. “Specifically for this type of vessel, which is an asphalt carrier/product tanker, the ability to switch to the Take Me Home mode provides Auxiliary Propulsion Drive (APD) as per requirement in the same package. Our solution provides considerable fuel saving and service cost saving achieved from the stopped auxiliary generators in sailing mode.”
