Advanced electrical and propulsion systems

NTD Offshore develops and produces a wide range of advanced electrical systems, including full diesel electrical plants, main switch boards and total vessel management systems.

The Helix Producer I required a full conversion of its diesel electrical propulsion system, in order to meet modern standards, which we completed thanks to our extensive experience of electrical systems.

  • 12Te-30Te
  • 1m/s-2.5m/s
  • 1,000m-4,000m umbilical
  • Hydraulic or electrical
  • Active heave compensated or standard

Oceanographic winches have the following features:

  • 1Te-8Te
  • 1m/s-2.5m/s
  • 1,000m-7,000m umbilical
  • Hydraulic or electrical
  • Active heave compensated or standard
