The Energy Management System (EMS) on Bernhard Schulte’s next offshore wind vessel has recently undergone lab tests at Ulstein, in preparation for real-life testing when the vessel leaves for sea trial.

Ulstein Design & Solutions developed an Energy Management System (EMS) in order to control the energy flow between the switchboard and the batteries, firstly to be taken in use on the Yard No 315 newbuild at Ulstein Verft for Bernhard Schulte.

The system covers demanding operations for peak shaving and spinning reserve and will allow the vessel to operate only one diesel engine even in DP operations.

The Ulstein EMS system was presented to the shipyard and ship owner, with representatives given insight into the operation of the EMS and onboard battery systems. This introduction was held in a test lab, where the EMS was connected to various signal simulators in order to create an operational environment.

The newbuild is a Service Operation Vessel for the offshore wind industry and will be working for GE Renewable Energy on the Merkur Offshore Wind Farm offshore Germany.
