Automated power management system increases safety aboard full-rigged ship
Georg stage is built in 1934 and provides young people with maritime education and experiences of a lifetime. Unlike other training ships, Georg Stage is not associated with any onshore school, and it is one of the oldest, civil training ship in the world. Every year, Georg Stage completes two 20-week expeditions, and the crew counts 10 employees and 63 students. The old vessel sails primarily in the North European waters and is right now in Denmark where it will complete its current expedition that started in Alicante, Spain back in February.
The training ship is beautiful, but it has taken a comprehensive retrofit to appear like this.
Being along in years, Georg Stage needed to be shined up, and in 2017, Assens Shipyard began a complete retrofit that lasted for nine months and comprised all parts of the ship.
“The new system makes my job much easier. The synchronisation is done automatically in a split second, and we no longer need to restart everything when connecting to onshore power”
