ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY, ECONOMICAL, RELIABLE AND SIMPLE: PARALLEL HYBRID PROPULSION OFFERS NOTHING BUT ADVANTAGES

Since 1968 NAVE VA have specialised in maritime excursions into the heart of the most beautiful areas of western and southern Corsica, and they want to run their business in an ethical and sustainable way.

Electric propulsion generates no emissions and is extremely user-friendly: the vessels that use it are silent, experience much lower levels of vibration and are easier to handle. Last but not least in terms of its advantages: parallel hybrid represents an attractive economic proposition.

L

eroy-Somer and Control Techniques have been suppliers of marine applications for many years. In association with Mayday Electronics they have now produced a high-performance propulsion system which is at the leading edge of hybrid technology. The system was developed for CNB PRO, a trademark of Construction Naval Bordeaux (Bénéteau Group), and its client, NAVE VA.

MORE INFORMATION

Trusting in CNB PRO’s know-how in the field of passenger transport vessels and the expertise of the naval architects, Bureau Mauric, the Corsican boat excursion company, NAVE VA, recently acquired a new model CNB PRO 20 Hybrid. As specialists in organising visits to protected sites, NAVE VA do not consider this solution to be an option, but rather an environmental duty.

06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

In low speed mode, for manoeuvring in port or in protected areas, the vessel switches to electric power. “The silence is incredible,” explains Eric Brun of the Mayday company, which designs and supplies the propulsion system for these hybrid vessels. It has a speed of 6 to 8 knots, which is quite sufficient. A rapid return on investment Parallel hybrid differs from serial hybrid in that the size of the electric motor can be designed to match the desired application, which in the case of NAVE VA is for a 6 to 8-knot low-speed mode. Optimum efficiency is therefore achieved: at low speed, the electric motor is used in its optimum operational range. In addition, the weight of the installation is much less for equivalent endurance. Another advantage is that the internal combustion engines can be stopped when the electric mode is activated. The CNB PRO shipyard, situated in Bordeaux (western France) and part of the Bénéteau Group, has identified a decisive advantage of hybrid propulsion systems: “Diesel engines do not run at optimum efficiency at low speeds. They exhibit low levels of efficiency and are prone to fouling. The fact that the diesel engine can be shut down in order to use the electric


NEWS

The LSRPM series from Leroy Somer’s Dyneo® motor range offers high levels of efficiency and an exceptionally compact design.

A technology which is expected to develop “Legislation is changing. Electric power is becoming mandatory for an increasing number of applications, and not just in protected nature reserves. We are developing the hybrid system, in particular the parallel hybrid system, which is ideally suited to ships of less than 30 metres. Its use could be extended to regular ferry services, links between two ports, and river or pleasure navigation,” Pierre Lompech concludes. The passenger vessel supplied to NAVE VA is equipped with two 800 hp motors, allowing it to achieve a speed of 20 knots in diesel mode. In electric mode it has a maximum speed of 8 knots and an endurance of 6 - 8 hours at a speed of 6 knots. Recharging takes a maximum of 6 hours, and uses a harbour three-phase supply or the on-board electrical generator.

Hybrid propulsion allows 135 passengers to be ferried on visits to the Scandola nature reserve in Corsica, with no CO2 emissions and the use of batteries eliminating the noise pollution generated by internal combustion engines.

propulsion system helps to preserve it. Its service life can therefore be doubled, depending on the applications,” explains Pierre Lompech of CNB PRO. For the NAVE VA vessel, this would mean changing the engine after 16 years, instead of just 8. In real terms, the replacement of the two diesel engines represents a budget equivalent to the price of the electric propulsion system.

“Despite the system’s advantages there are still very few parallel hybrid systems in use, especially in France. Apart from passenger ferry, we have projects in the field of pleasure boats for ‘super yachts’ and in military applications,” says Eric Brun. Leroy-Somer and Control Techniques are global specialists in drive solutions, and offer a range of products specifically designed for the maritime world “We chose the Dyneo® range LSRPM series permanent magnet 750 - 3000 rpm synchronous motor because of its high output and exceptionally compact design. We did find more compact motors, but these used separate cooling systems, which complicates installation in the limited space available in the engine room. Furthermore, LeroySomer offered to make the motor suitable for use at sea, in particular by supplying an aluminium housing appropriate to the environmental constraints”, adds Eric Brun. “The reliability of Leroy-Somer and Control Techniques products is also an advantage. The first vessel equipped with Leroy-Somer motors on a Mayday propulsion system has been in continuous operation since April 2012. This is the Hélios ferry at Marseilles (southern France), designed with the operator, ICARD Maritime, who have made over 2000 sea voyages without any problems. In fact, we chose industrial motors which are tried and tested in manufacturing industry rather than in maritime applications. The motors are only used for a few hours per day, whereas they’re in operation 24-hours a day in some factories,” concludes Eric Brun.

MORE INFORMATION

“The use of an electric propulsion system instead of internal combustion for manoeuvring in port, for berthing and for low-speed travel reduces the length of time that the internal combustion engines are in use during the phases when they are least efficient. In these operating situations, significant reductions in fuel and maintenance costs are achieved. 70 litres of fuel per hour can be saved for each diesel engine, therefore totalling 140 litres per hour. Taking account of the overall added costs of the electrical propulsion installation (about €350k to €400k depending on the capacity of the battery set) and the seasonal use specific to our client, the latter expects to be able to write off this extra cost in less than four seasons, and at the same time increase the service life of the diesel engines while extending their maintenance intervals,” says Pierre Lompech. The electric propulsion system also provides redundancy, which is essential for passenger vessels.

“The price of electric propulsion could come down even more in the future. The batteries take up a lot of space and are still quite expensive, at about 1 euro per Watthour. Since the installed electrical capacity is 125 kWh, the batteries represent about half the cost of the propulsion system. The remainder is made up of the mechanical drive system, the two electric motors and the variable speed drive units. Ensuring compliance with marine conditions is straightforward. The motors and variable speed drives are installed in dry dock, the fastenings are made of stainless steel and often only minimal environmental adaptations are required, such as adding coats of paint”, explains Eric Brun.

FOUR SEASONS RESORT BORA BORA HAS INTEGRATED A 600KWP ROOFTOP SOLAR PV SYSTEM

Sunzil SAS, a Delta sales partner, has installed a new photovoltaic system in the luxurious 5-star French Polynesian resort, allowing it to produce green electricity.

F

or several years, the luxury hotel complex, located on the South Pacific island of Bora Bora, has implemented an ecological business approach. Renowned for its white sandy beaches, its turquoise water and overwater bungalows, the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora wanted to go a step further in protecting this stunning environment by investing in a solar PV system.

The beachfront resort decided to pursue a 600kWp commercial photovoltaic system installation to help reduce its carbon footprint and to protect the beauty of its environment. However, the advantages of a photovoltaic system at this particular site extend far beyond the environmental aspects. Bora Bora is a remote island of French Polynesia that produces the majority of its electricity from power plants that run on diesel. Electricity provided by the local utility company, EDT, is very expensive because of the high operating expenses on the island and the high fuel transportation costs to this faraway location. The electricity on Bora Bora can cost up to 41 euro cents per kWh (49.5 francs CFP per kWh). A rooftop PV system would help the resort to better control the costs of its electricity supply.

MORE INFORMATION

Sunzil was selected for the system engineering and main turnkey construction of the project. As a subsidiary of Total and EDF, it has designed, built and operated photovoltaic plants in the island area since 1986. The PV array was installed on the roofs of two large service buildings inside the resort complex. To accommodate all the solar panels needed, an additional building with an area 06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

of 1600m² had to be built. 1884 Benq 327W solar modules were installed. 29 Delta RPI M20A inverters (each with a rated power output of 20kVA) were chosen for this PV project. The RPIseries inverters are ideal for tropical climates due to their IP65 protection rating, which guarantees the units are impervious to water spray and humidity. The Delta M20A inverter offers other benefits in tropical environments, such as full power operation at high ambient temperatures and a rugged aluminum chassis that is highly resistant to sea salt corrosion. Additionally, a maximum efficiency of 98.4% helps to ensure that all the available solar energy from the PV system is harvested. Construction of the project began in July 2015 and lasted only a few weeks. The commissioning of the system took place in October 2015. The new solar system now generates around 930 MWh of electricity per year, and the hotel is expected to reduce its carbon footprint by about 530 tons of carbon dioxide per year. MORE INFORMATION

Delta is proud to have integrated its solar inverters into the photovoltaic system of this beautiful hotel complex, not only to contribute to a clean and stable energy supply, but also to participate in the protection of a first-class tourist destination for future generations to enjoy. www.deltaww.com 06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

INDIANA EVOLUTION

The Chip Breaking Effect: Direct delivery of cutting fluid to the work zone together with a variety of application-specific chipbreakers provides the Beyond Evolution™ grooving and cut-off system robust chip control while substantially extending tool life.

Manufacturing engineer Ian Dotson keeping an eye on machining progress with Beyond Evolution™ grooving and cut-off system from Kennametal

A job shop in the Midwestern US State of Indiana cuts insert costs in half and triples tool life with Beyond Evolution™ grooving and cut-off tools from Kennametal.

S

ince the day some ingenious machine tool engineer first mounted a metal tube on an engine lathe, machinists have been looking for a better way to cut off parts. From hand-ground bits to high speed steel blades to indexable carbide inserts, cut-off tool technology has continued to improve over the years, increasing metalcutting efficiency and lowering operational expenses along the way. One large step in that evolution came with the development over recent years of multi-purpose cut-off tools able to switch hit as grooving, turning, and profiling tools, giving manufacturing companies the ability to simplify setups and shorten production cycles, and in some cases keep fewer tools in the crib.

Searching for simplicity One such company is EMC Precision, a family owned and operated precision machining job shop headquartered in Elyria, Ohio. Since 1925, EMC has provided prototype to production machining and value-added services to a range of industries including fluid management, hydraulic fluid & power, automotive, recreational, and other OEMs. Ian Dotson, manufacturing engineer at EMC’s Sheridan, Indiana facility says he was happy with the tool life and performance of his existing cut-off solution, and was only looking for a reduction in his tooling costs when he called his local Kennametal distributor, CCA Inc.

The salesperson there introduced him to Kennametal’s Beyond Evolution™, a single-sided grooving and cut-off system with multidirectional turning capability, through the tool coolant, proprietary chip control, and “Triple V” secure seating geometry. Dotson admits he wasn’t too concerned about the bells and whistles, as long as the tool performed as well as what he was already using, and saved the company some money. He was pleased with the results. “We were using a 0.118 in. wide (3 mm) PVD-coated insert to cut off 0.75 in. diameter (19 mm) 4140 steel hydraulic 06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

actuators,” he says. “We swapped out the old tool for a Kennametal Beyond Evolution cut-off and kept the feeds and speeds the same. After several runs, we determined tool life was essentially identical, so from a performance perspective there was no difference, at least not on this job. But the Beyond Evolution inserts are dramatically less expensive, roughly 40 percent of what we were paying for our legacy tools. It was a clear win for us.” Triple time The next win came on a job Dotson was running on one of EMC’s Daewoo Lynx 220 CNC lathes, a transmission gear shaft made of 1-1/4 in. (32 mm) 8620 steel, and using a 0.236 in. wide tool (6 mm) to back turn a journal on the left side of the part prior to cut-off. In this application, insert cost was still a concern, but Dotson’s primary goal was tool life improvement.

This is reality for many shops Even without high pressure coolant, Beyond Evolution™ increased tool life three to one compared to EMC’s legacy cut-off system

cutting speed a bit, from 350 to 400 sfm, and bumped up the feedrates by about 30 percent. Even so, tool life increased threefold, to just over 2600 pieces per insert. I’m confident we could have cranked up the feeds and speeds even more, especially if we had plumbed the tool for coolant through, but there was no need. This operation supplies another machine, and that one was already running as fast as it could go. The big thing for us was getting more parts between tool changes, and that’s exactly what the Beyond Evolution did. It’s an excellent product at a very competitive price point.” www.kennametal.com

“The Daewoo isn’t equipped with high pressure cutting fluid, and the standard pump was unable to generate enough pressure for us to utilize coolant through the tool on our old cut-off system,” he explains. “Because of this, we’ve been stuck with flood coolant, and have always had some chip control issues as a result—the chip would roll back on itself and starve the cutting edge of coolant.” Despite the less than perfect cutting conditions, the Beyond Evolution performed beyond expectations. “We achieved very good results,” says Dotson. “This time we increased the 06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

NSK SPINDLE BEARINGS HELP MACHINE SHOP SAVE €24,000 PA

Horizontal machining centres are used frequently in the production of industrial heat exchangers.

When a manufacturer of heat exchangers was experiencing frequent production stoppages due to bearing damage on the spindles of its horizontal machining centres, the company turned to NSK for a solution. After comprehensive analysis, NSK recommended fitting its sealed, high-precision, angular contact ball bearings, a move that is helping the facility to save €24,000 per annum in replacement bearings and labour costs alone.

W MORE INFORMATION

hen first experiencing the repeated failures, the operations manager at the heat exchanger manufacturer asked NSK to conduct a detailed failure analysis. Within the framework of NSK’s AIP Added Value Programme, company experts examined the failed angular contact ball bearings, as well as the quality of the lubricant and the operating environment conditions.

It was discovered that coolant and metallic particles – both by-products of the machining process – had penetrated the bearings. The result was deterioration of the bearing lubricant, which consequently caused the bearing units themselves to fail. To overcome the issue, NSK proposed the use of its sealed, high-precision, angular contact ball bearings, which are deployed widely as spindle bearings in the machine tool industry. These bearings have contactless seals that are designed to deliver exemplary resistance to the penetration of contaminants without causing friction to increase, or spindle performance to drop. To help accommodate the increased axial loads exerted on spindles often present in horizontal machining centres, a further suggestion from NSK was the installation of bearings with a higher contact angle. As a result of adopting this recommendation, the heat exchanger manufacturer has

been able to increase the operational life of the bearings: after fitting NSK bearings to three of its horizontal machining centres, spindle bearing operating life increased on average by a factor of 12. Based on the previous cost of replacing bearings (as well as labour costs for installation), the heat exchanger manufacutrer is realising annual cost savings of €24,000 as a direct consequence of switching to NSK’s sealed, highprecision, angular contact ball bearings. Moreover, this figure does not include the costs incurred from any previous lost productivity or production downtime. Along with significantly increased operational life, further benefits of NSK bearings being enjoyed by the customer include reduced noise and vibration in the drive train, as well as far quicker installation in comparison with standard bearings without seals. www.nskeurope.com MORE INFORMATION 06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

DER ANTRIEB IS IN CONTROL

Networking in today’s production environments: smart drive units process data and transmit detailed status and application information as needed.

Smart drive systems increase manufacturing efficiency.

I

ntelligent plant concepts are taking hold in all kinds of industrial operations. Comprehensive drive solutions provider NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers “NORD 4.0 ready” components designed to facilitate and further this development.

MORE INFORMATION

Modern process plants require automation technology with advanced functional intelligence. Components must be able to provide key data from the field via various different networks and make a wealth of information including data from connected sensors and actuators available. In addition, smart field devices are increasingly expected to actively monitor events in the field and react autonomously.

06 | Industry EMEA | September 2016

Drive manufacturer NORD DRIVESYSTEMS addresses these demands with a modular range of geared motors, drive electronics, and software functions. The differentiated range of distributed drives facilitates the configuration of highly economical solutions tailored to a particular application’s characteristics. Featuring an on-board PLC, NORD inverters can implement logical sequence control. They offer full connectivity for communication with other nodes on the network, including flexible access from a device with a standard Ethernet interface by means of Ethernet tunneling. Know when to act The first and foremost prerequisite of intelligent process control–wherever the controller is installed and however it is connected (by cable or wireless, via Industrial Ethernet or Internet)–is accurate data from the field level. The components themselves must communicate their operating status in order to allow conclusions about what is happening in networked system segments. There must be appropriate interfaces for the vertical integration of sensors and actuators into control, management, and production planning systems, and high-quality data transmission must be ensured. NORD frequency inverters therefore monitor and transmit drive data and also collect information from

externally connected digital and analog sensors and actuators. Moreover, they enable condition monitoring and predictive maintenance using software capabilities for efficient diagnostics. The inverters can, for example, calculate the state of the gear lubricant and indicate when an oil change is required. They can also autonomously monitor wear on the braking surface as well as the load situation for the entire drive train. Based on such data, operators can implement predictive maintenance, thus augmenting plant availability.

Application development made easy NORD also facilitates application development, providing the user-friendly, free-of-charge NORD CON programming and parameterization software that supports drive-related functions according to IEC 61131-3, as well as the PLCopen motion control library. Customer-specific routines can be freely programmed in the text-based programming languages “Structured Text” or “Instruction List”. All driverelated functions can be implemented directly in the inverter PLC. Users therefore do not need to spend time and money on the development, verification, and validation of an application-specific firmware. Moreover, NORD CON enables remote access via Ethernet tunneling – for instance, from a notebook with a standard Ethernet interface –, which gives users very flexible remote diagnostics and maintenance options. NORD frequency inverters can also manage safety applications, notably for implementing Safe Stop 1 (SS1) and Safe Torque Off (STO). A library with these safety-related functions is available for free from the NORD website. It enables an evaluation of machine applications according to DIN EN ISO 13849 with the safety integrity software tool SISTEMA.

MORE INFORMATION

Autonomous removal of obstacles The frequency inverters can utilize their versatile sensor interfaces to do much more than just pass on data to a central controller. These drives also react to changing process conditions according to their parameterization. They can implement closed loops based on their integrated PI controller functionality. In metering applications, for example, NORD drives detect the fill level and control replenishment. In all kinds of process applications, networked drives ensure that glitches that occur will often not result in downtime with considerable costs. By monitoring the load situation, the on-board PLC of the inverter is able to detect blockages of pumps, screw conveyors, or agitators. If proper drive parameters are set for glitch scenarios, a NORD drive will, for instance, first attempt to remove a mechanical obstacle by reversing direction and by pulse operation. If this effectively resolves the blockage, the drive will then resume normal operation. If the problem

persists, the inverter can submit an error signal to the control level and can possibly initiate a fallback procedure, e.g. have other networked drive units unlock a bypass. The PLC capabilities of these inverters significantly contribute to higher plant availability and lower service costs.
