- Power Conversion is leading the path to cleaner LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) operations with highly reliable electrification solutions that are helping to reduce carbon emissions.
- Its energy-efficient electric ship solutions support decarbonization for vessels working in the energy sector without compromising performance.
- Power Conversion recently won a contract award from HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. (HHI) to supply GE Vernova’s SeaGreen* integrated electrical power and propulsion system for a new FSRU (Floating, Storage and Regasification Unit).
- The next generation FSRU will mark the third FSRU in operation by ship owner Excelerate Energy Inc. to be powered by Power Conversion’s integrated electrical propulsion system.
Power Conversion, an integral part of the GE Vernova portfolio of energy businesses, will convene with energy sector thought leaders at Gastech 2023 to showcase its most advanced electrification solutions. The energy transition event in Singapore, 5-8 September, will highlight solutions across the value chain for LNG, hydrogen and low carbon technologies. Find the team at booth D402.
Power Conversion electrification solutions improve energy-efficiency for the industry’s energy and maritime operations. Ships transporting and storing energy are a critical part of the energy sector, particularly with recent global concerns over energy surety and supply.
Featured in the portfolio of electrification systems showcased will be GE Vernova’s Power Conversion SeaGreen* range of power and energy vessel solutions which support the path to decarbonization without compromising performance.
Power Conversion recently won a contract award from HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. to supply GE Vernova’s SeaGreen* integrated power and propulsion system, equipped with high power-density induction motor technology, to power and propel the next generation FSRU for United States ship owner Excelerate Energy Inc.
The FSRU, to be constructed at HD Hyundai Heavy Industries’ shipyard, is to be fitted with the latest, proven technology for optimized vessel energy management and performance. Power Conversion’s integrated electric propulsion system, with PWM (pulse width modulation) power converters and high torque density induction motors, brings higher efficiency, reliability, and availability for sustainable operations, to ship owners.
This new vessel will be the eleventh FSRU joining Excelerate Energy’s fleet, marking a third of its fleet to be powered by Power Conversion’s integrated electrical propulsion system.
Eric Cotelle, General Manager at Power Conversion, France, explained: “Building on 130 years of experience, GE Vernova’s Power Conversion business is leading a new era of energy – electrifying the world while simultaneously working to decarbonize it.”
Cotelle continued: “Power Conversion is proud to provide HHI and its customer Excelerate with a state-of-the-art integrated electrical propulsion system and support them in delivering on energy efficiency and electrification, as part of the maritime and energy sector transition.”
