1562TEU Container Ship "Maogang Shanghai"

On January 13, 2021, the 1562TEU container ship "Maogang Shanghai", which was manufactured by Zhejiang Hexing Shipyard and classified into CCS, was successfully launched into the water. At present, it has been successfully towed to the anchorage for the next stage of equipment commissioning. The ship power station uses three 400kW diesel gensets as the main genset (the original engine is Yuchai YC6TD655L-C20 marine ECU diesel engine), the total capacity of the power station is 1200kW and 500kW shaft genset is used under navigation. SmartGen provides the ship with one-stop power station management solution from engine control to main switchboard control.

Schematic diagram of SmartGen marine engine intelligent control and power station power management solution

In order to promote the reliability and automation of this ship’s automatic power station management system, this ship’s main genset is equipped with MGCP100B-2 diesel engine control box developed by SmartGen for marine ECU to realize the automatic start/stop of main genset, engine safety protection and ECM parameter monitoring functions. Its main control unit applies HMC9000A engine controller. The control box is equipped with a built-in HEP300 electronic potentiometer, which can convert the passive digital speed signal from the switchboard into a 0~5V signal with higher precision to achieve higher precision load adjustment. The HRM3300-3 remote control box with the same operating interface as the local control box, is installed on the alarm detection platform.

Meanwhile, the main switchboard adopts the multi-master power management system built by SmartGen HMC6 power management controller to realize the on-demand automatic scheduling and real-time protection of 3 main gensets + 1 shaft genset + 1 emergency and mooring genset, which greatly improves the power supply reliability of the power station.

Since SmartGen mature products with full intellectual property rights and CCS certification are used from diesel engine control to power management module of the main switchboard, the whole system follows the same design style, with more friendly HMI, easier operation and more efficient crew training.
During the commissioning process of the power station, SmartGen’s on-site service personnel worked together with the project management personnel of Hexing shipyard, ship owner representatives, genset manufactures and main switchboard manufacturers, to ensure that the power station passed the acceptance of the CCS with high standard. This is another successful case of SmartGen marine control products in high-end marine application field in 2020.

Application of HMC9000S+AIN16-C+AIN16-PT+HRM3300

About 30 nautical miles away from a costal port in the beautiful Zhanjiang city, Guangdong Province, there was a huge ship of nearly 10,000 tons sand pumping ship. The two 12-cyclinder water pump engines are controlled by HMC9000S, and the 12 cylinder temperatures of the engines are detected by the expanded analog input module AIN16-PT. The temperature of 8 shafts is detected by the expanded analog input module AIN16-C, and the shaft temperature signal is converted from PT100 to 4~20mA current type signal through the temperature transmitter to the AIN16-C. The AIN16-C then transmits it to the diesel engine controller HMC9000S through CANBUS (EXPANSION) communication, and finally displays the real-time temperature and protection of the shaft. HMC9000S transmits the engine information to the remote control module HRM3300 in cab through CANBUS (REMOTE) communication, and can also control engine start/stop remotely through HRM3300.

Project Control System Introduction

HMC9000S engine controller: can be widely used in marine emergency units, main propulsion units, DG units or water pump units. Its remote monitoring module interface enables remote monitoring, which can remotely control engine start, stop, etc.
