WE Tech Solutions was awarded a contract to provide its Solution One Economical Operations Solution with Shore Connection for the energy efficiency refit of two modern vessels and nine options for the Norwegian shipping business Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC). During their next scheduled dockings in Q2 and Q3 2023, one CABU II class vessel and one CLEANBU class vessel will receive the upgrades.

The delivery package includes the innovative Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Shaft Generator, WE Drive and Shore Connection. The Economical Operations solution with WE Drive supplies the vessels’ electrical power distribution from the shaft generator allowing for the auxiliary generators to be stopped, therefore substantial fuel and maintenance costs can be saved.

With the flexible shore connection function, vessels are not dependent on various voltages and frequencies of national power grids worldwide. The WE Drive can generate at least 50% cheaper shore power compared to electricity generated onboard the vessel.

“We are very honoured to have been selected by KCC for the equipment delivery, and we believe this will start a new chapter in how WE Tech Solutions can support ship-owners to meet both existing and upcoming IMO regulations. We are confident that our technically optimised shaft generator solution will significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.” Says Mr Martin Andtfolk, the Sales Manager of WE Tech Solutions.

Engebret Dahm, CEO of KCC, comments, “At KCC, we are committed to being the most carbon efficient deep-sea shipping provider in our segment. We anticipate the advanced technical solution provided by WE Tech will play a key role in optimising our vessels’ operational performance and further reducing our environmental footprint.”
