Viking Dynamic is a fast, slim and flexible offshore platform supply vessel. Its speed is controlled via frequency converters. But there is no risk of disturbance, thanks to Roxtec transits for potential equalization and electromagnetic shielding.
Roxtec PE transits have been installed to handle cables passing in and out of the converters. From here the cables pass on to the stern and to the electrical motors.
Frequency filter required
Viking Dynamic has electrical propulsion and the speed is controlled by altering the frequency via frequency converters to the motors. The converters in a diesel-electric drive system may cause unwanted high frequency disturbance, and this must be filtered out not to enter the motors, which in turn could face a risk of damage and subsequent repairs and loss of productivity for the ship.
The solution came through Vik-Sandvik ship design and the engineering department at the parent company, Aker Aukra AS. Here the Roxtec transits have been known and used for a long time, and the awareness of Roxtec solutions for EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) came in handy. The choice fell on Roxtec PE (potential equalization) and ES (electromagnetic shielding) transits because they offered a ready-made shielding solution for the cables from the converters to the motors in combination with fire-proof transits for marine environments.
