Propulsion Systems

Electric propulsion systems are provided on ships with special
requirements with the additional advantage of essential higher

reliability, dependability and availability by redundant
configuration. They are based on the principle of speed

controlled synchronous, asynchronous or direct current (DC)
motors driving the propeller directly or via gear. The most
reliable and low noise design is the direct drive.
