A reliable source of power aboard is essential, especially for diesel-electric applications operating in DP-mode. The black start capability of the PA6 B is well proven by Nuclear Power Plants for which a fast and reliable start-up of the GenSet is of paramount importance.
The PA6 B is equipped with a starting turbine connected to the flywheel. A second starting turbine can be added as a redundant start system. Alternatively the PA6 B can be furnished with a starting arrangement via cylinder which reduces start up time significantly.
