The systems will be constructed with the latest design using VISEDO-EPC DC-grid topology minimizing the need for additional electric equipment in the vessel compared to standard AC-grid solution still widely used in the marine applications today.

By using the ultra compact VISEDO PowerMASTER inverters and PowerDRUM Permanent magent generators and propulsion motors the solution results in over 60% space and weight savings compared to other DC-bus solutions based on standard water cooled inverters, synchronous generators and induction motors - not to mention to traditional AC-bus solutions. The full systems are to be delivered to the two vessels in the summer 2014.
