Damen Naval and ABB have signed a contract for the supply of onboard DC grid systems, transformers, generators, transverse thruster motors, energy storage systems, including associated control systems and cybersecurity solutions for all four F126 class frigates (plus two optional units) building for the German Navy, Damen writes in a press release..
According to Damen, this lays the foundation for a modern, requirements-based system for the generation, distribution and use of electrical energy on board the F126 frigates. The DC system will enable the diesel generators of the frigates to be operated with variable speed depending on the power. The robustness of the DC grid will enable the German Navy to use as few diesel generators as possible without power outages. Reportedly, this will significantly reduce the overall running time and thus the fuel consumption of the power generation systems.
The first F126 frigate is expected to be delivered to the German Navy in 2028.
