Vladivostok, December 12 - Neftegaz.RU. Commissioned by the Technology Localization Division and together with technology partner General Electric, Sapphire Applied Engineering and Training Centre (subsidiary of Rosneft) specialists developed an electric steerable thruster with a capacity of 7.5 MW for reinforced ice-class multi-functional support vessels for the IBSV 10022 project that are being built at Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex.
The steerable thruster is the key element of a ship's electro-motional system that influences its performance and manoeuvrability. Specifically, the use of the steerable thruster allows the vessel to turn in her own length without a tow boat, and also increases the ice-breaking capability.
It is the 1st Russian product of this class developed in accordance with the purposes and tasks of the Rosneft-2022 Strategy. Technological development in all areas of the company's activities is an important element of the Strategy, primarily due to the accelerated replication of its own innovative developments.
The IBSV 10022 project's vessels are designed for an unrestricted navigation and are targeted at delivering cargo to offshore drilling platforms, their icebreaker support, towing vessels and offshore facilities, and participating in rescue operations.
Among the future plans of Sapphire specialists are the development of a steerable thruster with a capacity from 11 to 15 MW for large-capacity vessels and ice-class LNG carriers.
