Shaft Generators / PTI-PTO-PTH
Port and water protection authorities require redundant propulsion systems for freighters and tankers carrying hazardous and inflammable goods during loading if the main engine is not ready for operation. This requirement is fulfilled by our combined Shaft Motor drive and Shaft Generator system which supplies the mains consumers during normal sea operation in a special economic matter.
Other aspects are the following:
- When situations occur with the main engine during travelling the ship can reach at least a safe anchorage if not a safe port
- If local port authorities have stringent pollution standards the shaft motor drive can be used in port producing less air pollutants
- For more flexible operation of the propulsion plant with higher ship speed and for adaptation to various sea conditions and time schedules the electrical Shaft Motor system can be used as booster drive supporting the main engine.
