In June of this year DBR Generatorsets was contracted by Heerema Marine Contractors in the Netherlands for engineering, packaging, testing and delivery of 4x DBR Marine Generator sets for their project H-851.

Since Heerma Marine Contractors decided to carry out a Life Time extension program on the barge H-851, the repowering of the Marine Generator sets was priority. 

The Marine Generator sets on the barge H-851 must be build according heavy Marine & Offshore conditions and optimized according IMO Tier II emission regulations. In case high quality and offshore requirements apply to this H-851 project, this order suits very well for DBR Generatorsets as thé specialist in Offshore and Marine projects with high quality standards.

The requirements valid for the total contract consists of 4MW - DBR Marine Gensets, 3x 1500kVA Mitsubishi and 1x Harbour MAN Genset in Silent Enclosure. 
For extension of life time and also longer service and inspection intervals DBR build the packages also with IP55 totally enclosed water-cooled Leroy Somer generators. 
More benefits of the IP55 water-cooled generators are less air circulation in the engine room means smaller ventilation system required and less heat into engine room. 
Totally enclosed generators means no dust, chemicals or salt laden air into the generator, so big advantage is extension of the life time and longer service intervals.

December 2013 the DBR Marine Gensets are successfully FAT tested, according Lloyds classification at DBR test bench in the Netherlands and will arrive in January 2014 at the shipyard in China. Commissioning and Start up of the DBR Marine Gensets for H-851 is planned at the first quarter 2014.
