Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) is pleased to announce the new contract to supply Gulf Marine Services with an electrical package for their new E Class self-propelled jack-up vessel “Evolution”. NES has delivered several systems already to Gulf Marine Services and the new E Class will mean a total of five vessels will be powered by NES. The full scope of supply is a complete electrical package, automation (IAS), Fire and Gas system.

“We have been working closely with Gulf Marine Services for several years now and the award of this latest contract is the best form of customer feedback that any supplier could wish for. The reliability of our products and our ability to listen to what our clients really want, has enabled us to deliver the best possible solutions to suit their needs,” says Paul Winson, Senior Vice President Sales.

Recently, after completing a successful commissioning and sea trials, GMS performed the naming ceremony of 5602 Scirocco, which is the third successful vessel NES has supplied to GMS.

In addition to electrical engineering, system integration and project leading NES has delivered and integrated the vessel`s automation system (IAS). NES has delivered a highly redundant ring net solution, which enables the vessel to operate with smaller generators, motors and thrusters without comprising on the performance. In addition the very low harmonic distortion levels of the electrical system only enhance the vessel`s reliability and efficiency.

In a letter of appreciation, the GMS Management recently expressed their gratitude to NES for great support and assistance that was afforded to GMS in the design, construction, commissioning and ultimately, the handover of GMS Scirocco to the Operations team.

NES fourth delivery to GMS, 5603 “Sharqi”, is scheduled for delivery in April 2016.
