Converteam in UK naval project

14 September 2010

Converteam will supply electrical systems for explosives handling cranes at the UK’s RNAD (Royal Naval Armaments Depot) after the winning a contract worth £2.6 million. The base is at Coulport on Loch Long in Scotland.

The overhead gantry cranes are used for handling weapons for the Royal Navy’s submarine fleet and are currently undergoing upgrades and refurbishment by SPIE Matthew Hall as main contractor.

Converteam is providing crane control and monitoring systems together with AC and DC drives which power the cranes and the control cab, as well as fail-safe systems which ensure that, in the event of a failure, the cranes degrade to the safest possible condition. With reliability and safety being of the highest importance, Converteam’s power and control systems are extensively duplicated in order to maintain crane functionality even in the unlikely event of any single point equipment failure.

The new systems will be delivered and commissioned by the end of 2010.
