Propulsion for Cruise and Ferries Applications

Most of the modern cruise liners and ferries are designed with converter-fed propulsion systems offering a lot of advantages as low noise and vibration free operation, maximized cabin respectively loading capacity, more economic operation with especially improved efficiency in partial propulsion power mode, high degree of reliability, availability and redundancy, reduced emissions and wear and tear.

Depending on the required grade of redundancy and depending on the operational profile of the vessel synchro-converter (LCI) or PWM-converter drives with synchronous or with induction motors are well proven and reliable solutions for propulsion systems.
