Ampelmann power unit

Below a picture of the first power unit that Hycos has built for Ampelmann.

Ampelmann is world leader in heave compensated platforms and gangways, having grown quickly over the last few years. After years of renting powerpacks, Ampelmann wanted to have a power unit built to meet their experiences working offshore with the Ampelmann system.

This diesel driven power unit has 3 Caterpillar C 9 diesel engines with a combined power of 840 kW, 3 x 400 LPM capacity, and all combined with a high level of redundancy. The control system for example consists of 3 separated systems, integrated in one cabinet.
