The ferry’s propulsion system is powered by two Scania 500hp diesel engines running at up to 1800rpm, and it also has two Scania MeccAlte 425kw gen-sets running at 1500rpm which provide power for the ferry’s onboard requirements. There is also Sisu/MeccAlte gen-set for emergency power supply. All five engines are fitted with InteliDrive DCU Marine controllers which communicate with the ferry’s SCADA system provided by Emersom marine.
The InteliDrive DCU Marine controllers operate in three application modes (Propulsion, Auxiliary and Emergency) allowing the controllers to control, monitor and protect every engine and also to integrate fully into the ferry’s power management and monitoring systems. The project meets the highest maritime standards for safety and performance.
