The scale of the refurbishment means that MV Aura has much greater demands for electricity than originally designed, so this area of the vessel was also significantly upgraded and Tapimec Oy (the official ComAp distributor in Finland) was pleased to be able to supply the system which powered it all.
Machinery Oy supplied three gen-sets in shipping containers, one switchboard container and one fuel container. In each gen-set container there is one 60L Cummins Marine diesel generator, a QSK60-D (with a power rating of 2095HP in Prime use) and one PI734G2 Stamford generator. Each container has a power output of 1800 kVA. In a normal situation, two gensets are running and the third is on stand-by. There is also a mode for load shedding.
