Case story

Primary Switchboard for Marine Mining Vessel

This project required a high level of modularity and flexibility that allowed for unique design features. The Main Distribution Board had to comply with Marine standards as well as fit into a narrow space. The solution was an impressive U-shaped design.

The end-user

Marine Mining Vessel

The end-user is a Marine Mining Vessel that operates in high impact environments. The requirements are high concerning safety as well as operation. For this reason, the end-user needed an option that could provide high reliability during operation.

The Project

For this project, our Logstrup Global Partner was tasked with designing and assembling a 10.000A Main Distribution Board with a 150kA fault rating with Arc barriers. The design had to be compliant according to Lloyds and Marine certification.

The Challenge

The biggest obstacle was the limited space which meant the Main Distribution Board had to be built in a U-Shape design to fit into the allocated space on the Vessel.

Why Logstrup

Modularity and certified quality

The most important aspects of this project were the unique design and level of compliance and certification. With the Logstrup Modular System, panel builders are left with multiple design options for even the trickiest projects. In this case, the unique L-shape copper connections could be made to fit the U-shaped design of the panels. Thus, our global partner and panel builder was able to design a solution that would fit into the allocated space. In addition, the Logstrup Modular System comes with a high certified fault level and conforms with Lloyd's and DNV/GL Marine Certifications.
