Increasing efficiency with optimized propulsion systems
In constant pursuit of energy efficiency
Quality components tailored to your needs
We take a holistic approach to your ship, examining the operational profile to optimize all relevant components, from the engine to the rudder, including all speed, maneuvering, and load control settings. Whatever your needs may be, we can design the most efficient propulsion system for your specific operational profile to make your ship greener. For example, our MAN Alphatronic 3000 propulsion control system optimizes propeller function as well as engine operation for better maneuverability and overall efficiency.
Together with our partners for gearboxes and AKA (hybrid propulsion systems) we can create innovative solutions for the complex propulsion needs of ships. The advantages are that all components fit perfectly and crews work with only one system, which has one set of controls. A further benefit is that you have a single point of contact for contract, installation, and aftersales.
Starting from a complete understanding of the ship’s operational profile, we optimize all the relevant components: Engine, gearbox, shaft machine, propeller, nozzle, rudder, and propulsion control system – including speed setting, maneuvering, and load control.
No matter how complex your needs, we customize a solution that delivers the best propulsive efficiencies and gives your ship a greener profile. We use MAN Alpha shafts and propellers, hybrid propulsion systems like the energy-saving MAN HyProp ECO. Under the MAN Cryo brand, we offer dual-fuel propulsion and liquified natural gas (LNG) supply systems which reduce emissions, raise fuel efficiency and power density, and keep operation economical.
How you benefit:
- Tailor-made to your specific needs
- Optimized for your ship’s operational profile
