Hydraulic System

The hydraulic system is a Bosch-Rexroth custom designed system to supply all hydraulic functions quietly and smoothly, eliminating any inherent hydraulic noise. The alternative power sources are installed to meet the demands of the sail handling equipment. Central hydraulic system is PLC controlled.

 The hydraulic system is defined on a basis of a central power pack supplying regionally located valve groups, thereby achieving minimal weight to power ratio with the effect of using minimum electrical power with maximum hydraulic movement. Each control valve group is situated close to the operating unit, giving a precise control and allows for a quiet and smooth operation, eliminating inherent hydraulic noise and vibration. The system has two different sources of power. Each source will be operated independently of each other. The sources are obtained from:

1. Generator PTO pump Bosch-Rexroth A10V045 on each genset, 22kW each

2. Two DC Electric motor standby pump units Bosch-Rexroth A10V028, 5 kW each – major service in 2014

All pumps are equipped with a horsepower controller. The function is based on the power requirement from the users with the style of maximum speed/ minimum pressure and maximum pressure/ minimum speed. The alternative power sources are installed to meet the demands of the sail handling equipment. Since the sail handling is dependent on hydraulic systems it is important to have alternative power sources to ensure trouble free operation.
