Technical Presentation by GE Power Conversion: Harry DeWolf-Class AOPS

C.I.MAR.E.    ST. LAWRENCE BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8th 

TIME: 12:00 pm EST (9:00 am PACIFIC, 1:00 pm ATLANTIC, 1:30 pm NFLD)

GE Powering the RCN’s first All Electric Vessels: the Harry DeWolf-Class  Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship

Learning Objective: to inform the Canadian Marine Industry about GE’s technology embodied in the modern  electric propulsion systems for ice class ships, with a focus on the RCN’s newest Class, the Arctic and Offshore  Patrol Ships (AOPS).

Abstract: The first AOPS, HMCS Harry DeWolf, was delivered to the Royal Canadian Navy on July 31, 2020, in  Halifax. This lead ship is the first of six vessels for the RCN with two variants to be built for the Canadian Coast  Guard. At 103 metres and 6,615 tonnes, HMCS Harry DeWolf is the largest RCN ship built in Canada in 50  years. All eight ice class vessels will be built by Irving Shipbuilding Inc. in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They are  powered by GE Power Conversion’s integrated full-electric propulsion system, with the engines, shaftlines  and propellers provided by GE’s consortium partner MAN Energy Solutions – Canada. 

This presentation will describe the key characteristics of GE’s recent high voltage and low voltage solutions  for IACS Polar Class 5 vessels including “Active Front End (AFE)” and “Diode Front End (DFE)” variable  frequency drive configurations. GE provided low voltage AFE propulsion for the Chilean Antarctica now  under construction by ASMAR, high voltage AFE propulsion for South Africa’s Antarctic vessel S.A. Agulhas II,  and high voltage DFE propulsion for the eight AOPS.

Presenters

 Gene Joelson, P.Eng., CD1, M.Eng., M.Sc., M.B.A.

Manager Business Development, GE Energy Power Conversion Canada Inc.

Mr. Joelson spent several years at sea in senior engineering positions in the ships and submarines of the  RCN. He holds advance degrees in engineering and business management. Gene is responsible for the  development of GE Power Conversion’s marine business in Canada. Based in Mississauga, Ontario, he  works closely with Power Conversion’s technology centres in the US, UK and France to bring GE’s world  class electric ship propulsion technology to Canada.

Reliable operations in the Arctic by Steerprop, Mr. Hannu Jukola, Propulsion specialist and Sales Manager at Steerprop, Steerprop

Tools to increase reliability and safety in arctic operations: Precise solutions based on experience and expertise ensures reliability in the most demanding applications and environments. Predictive maintenance provides preventability and safety in the remote operating areas.

Solutions for low emission and carbon neutral shipping, Mr. Mark Keneford, General Manager, Marine Solutions Sales, Wärtsilä

The energy sources at hand including alternative fuels and fuel flexibility are as important elements on the road to de-carbonisation as data and new technologies. Fuel flexibility, enabled by the combustion engine, is more important now than ever, de-risking today’s investment decisions. We need to invest in future fuels where applicable (and complementary energy sources). With existing products, solutions and infrastructure at hand we can reach the 2030 if we act now – for 2050 targets there must be further development done. LNG is the best route to de-carbonisation, transitioning from fossil LNG to bio- and synthetic LNG.

Hannu Jukola, Propulsion specialist and Senior Sales Manager at Steerprop

Since graduating as Naval Architect in 1990 from Helsinki University of Technology, where I majored in Ship Design and Hydrodynamics, I have been working with propulsion aspects, specializing in propeller design. Nowadays I have the pleasure of splitting my attention between sales activities and discussions over propulsion aspects with other Naval Architects. It is especially intriguing to be able to follow a ship project starting from the first marketing contact followed by sales negotiations to model tests, propeller design and finally sea trials.

Designing Green Vessels for Green Projects

C.I.Mar.E St Lawrence Branch Presents

WEBINAR TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH 10:30 EST

Designing Green Vessels for Green Projects

As sustainability regulations are tightening, the need for a greener energy production value chain grows. Reducing ship operation emissions is a necessary part of this.

We dive into how recent developments in fuel cells and how they can be used to reduce global and local emissions. Using real life examples from ABB’s activities in R&D and hydrogen fuel cells pilot projects, we will also present how fuel cells can be scaled up for high power ranges.
