GE Energy Storage System for Harvey Champion Retrofit
GE’s Power Conversion business was chosen by Harvey Gulf International Marine LLC to provide the latest SeaGreen Energy Storage System (ESS) on board the offshore platform service vessel (PSV), Harvey Champion. The SeaGreen solution manages energy sources according to load demand, enabling marine operators to optimize energy usage while providing continuity of operations, increased efficiency and reduced emissions.
Included in the transformer-less solution are two 1000A systems, each with batteries, drives and supporting cooling and safety systems, all mounted within a single ISO container. The plug-and-play approach makes the solution a simple, fast and cost-effective choice for vessel upgrades.
SeaGreen ESS can provide backup power in the event of a power blackout, which is hugely disruptive to vessel operations. It can also provide critical reserve power in the case of failure of any engine or smooth out peak power fluctuations.
