Swiss ship owner Suisse Atlantique got a second Tekomar TURBOCUT delivered
January 14th, 2015
The system was installed on a 7K80MC-C during port rotation in Australia. As Suisse Atlantique has previously installed the same system on another vessel they were already used to the benefits of the smart turbocharger cutoff system, and willing to profit from it also on this vessel.
The requirement of the charterer is to optimally run the engines in terms of fuel consumption even in low load operation. By being able to flexibly cut out one of two turbochargers the ship owner can fulfil this requests easily.
The manual but flexible system gives exactly the same benefits as any other turbocharger cut out system. The package consists of all material and and the installation by Tekomar engineers. Installation including the setting of the new operational limits and a crew training is done during one port stay.
