Similar to the SAVe Line system but specifically designed for vessels with over 20MW of installed generated power.
The main difference is the incorporation of transformers to step-down the voltage. The system uses high voltage (3-11kV) on the main switchboard and generators and low voltage on the consumers and distribution.
Combined pulse (12, 18 or 24 pulse) and step-down transformers can be used in combination with pulse drive units. Alternatively, the system can be based on AFE drive units, therefore only step-down transformers are used and all the advantages of the SAVe LINE system with AFE are realised in the most fuel efficient way.
