ship propulsion system / diesel-electric hybrid
5,000 kVA (6,798.1 hp)
State-of-the-art medium-voltage drives from 5 MW upward
Diesel-electric propulsion systems are clearly superior both technically and in operation to normal diesel drive systems in almost all areas. Drive MV is the marine industry’s leading alternating-current propulsion system. Although it can unleash much power, it runs as quiet as a whisper with low vibration.
High-performance and cost-effective operation
Designed without compromising power output and fail-safe performance, our Drive MV integrated drive system offers an almost unlimited power range. In addition to its high energy efficiency and low environmental impact, it is also marked by its quiet, low-vibration operation. And thanks to its state-of-the-art propulsion-control components and software, Drive MV allows vessels to be maneuvered with the highest precision.
Its redundancy design ensures the highest possible level of reliability. Right from the design phase, its simple, compact, and modular construction using standardized components provides maximum flexibility and scope and allows for worldwide availability of spare parts and ease of maintenance.
