THE KALDNES PROJECT-NEW PHILOSOPHY FOR REMOTE CONTROL OF MAIN PROPULSION MACHINERY
The Kaldnes project is a bridge control system designed by Noratom-Norcontrol A/S for interfacing with slow/medium speed reversible Diesel engines as represented by the B & WK series. This design of engine as delivered includes a comprehensive pneumatic manoeuvring system, a Woodward PG governor with additonal hydraulic amplifiers and hydraulic pump aggregate. All this equipment was removed from the engine after delivery and replaced by a simplified mechanical manoeuvring system adapted to electronic control from the bridge, from the remote-control panel in the engine room or from an emergency manoeuvring stand. Order from BSRA as No. 51,247.
