Kongsberg replenishment at sea (ras) equipment offers un-paralleled performance
and system maturity to meet the demanding requirements of naval replenishment
schedules around the world.
By installing the winches required to conduct all-electric Replenishment at Sea (RAS) into ISO shipping containers, the equipment can be installed on a Naval/commercial vessel in times of need and removed when not required. This allows modularity of the vessel depending on the mission objectives.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF AN ALL-ELECTRIC RAS SYSTEM
Equipment Complexity - Equipment operation is simple and has a reduced parts count
Cost of Installation & Commissioning On-board - Fully defined installation
and commissioning procedures.
Power Conversion - Efficient power conversion using latest power electronic
Some of the key benefits of this design are the way that the shipping containers are used not only to house the equipment, but also to give supporting structure and height where required.

SYSTEM DESIGN APPROACH
The key to the concept of the system was the rapid deployment, along with the utilisation of current KM hardware, to ensure that minimum new design was required where possible. The layout has been modelled around the standard layout of the KM RAS system, whilst keeping within the dimensional constraints
of the container footprints.
RAS System Concept
By maintaining the dimensions from the use of ISO containers, the system is stackable and may be rapidly deployed onto prepared deck seatings.
RAS & FAS Transfer
To facilitate rapid installation, the mast design minimises full bolted connections, seen only at the base of the mast itself, and the sheave housing fabrication. The sheave housing fab should not need to be broken in normal operation.
Standard Abeam Liquids RAS Masts
All interfaces, be they electrical, hydraulic, or chilled water will, where possible, be designed to utilise suitable connectors that maybe made or broken with minimum work required.
MAINTAIN PROVEN DESIGN
Where possible, the system has been designed around current KM products to maintain a low count on new product integration (NPI).
