Drives and controllers for the maritime sector

Custom drives for the marine & offshore industry

We develop and manufacture custom drives and automation solutions. Together with our customers in this industry, we have already developed many tailored solutions. A number of applications are shown below. Move over an area to read more details.

Conveyors in fish processing system

Sea fishing & fish farm

Conveyors in fish processing system

Wish: Drive a conveyor in a fish processing system on board a trawler. Solution: The conveyor continuously moves the fish while the high-tech PLC controls the weighing system with swell compensation.

Driving barrel transport crane

Ports & cargo transfer

Operating crane

Wish: Drive a crane to carefully move barrels.
Solution: Accurate MIG encoder feedback prevents gripper arms from opening too wide or clamping barrels too hard.

Electrically driving cutter suction dredges

Offshore

Driving cutter suction dredges

Wish: Cutter suction dredger electric drive adaptable to local power.
Solution: Dredger pump and hydraulic system driven by durable marine electric motors with C5-M coating and VFD; The system is flexible, durable and usable worldwide.

Driving ice chipping machine

Sea fishing & fish farm

Driving ice chipping machine

Wish: Produce ice shards on site to cool prawns.
Solution: A frozen metal cylinder, hygienically driven by a stainless steel worm gear unit, rotates in a water bath to produce ice shards.

MIG for mobile crane positioning

Ports & cargo transfer

MIG for mobile crane positioning

Wish: Position mobile harbor cranes for ship-to-shore container transfer.
Solution: MIG encoder feedback accurately positions the crane. A safety system prevents container lifting if the crane is not correctly positioned.

Driving offshore fish farm winch system

Sea fishing & fish farm

Driving offshore fish farm winch system

Wish: Winch system for setting and hauling in nets at an offshore fish farm.
Solution: An IP67-protected aseptic gear motor with special C5 marine coating lifts and winds the net with controlled speed.

Driving wind turbine mechanisms

Offshore

Driving yaw head and blade adjustment

Wish: Drive and control wind turbine yaw head and blade angle.
Solution: Yaw mechanism and blade angle driven by planetary gear motors. The pitch drives ensure ideal blade angles and are suitable for high radial and axial loads.

Driving and positioning eccentric machines

Ports & cargo transfer

Eccentric machines

Wish: Drive and position rotating machines with eccentric loads such as sorting grippers and cranes.
Solution: Integrated worm gear unit driven by an electric or hydraulic motor with encoder feedback, possibly with another reduction gear unit.

Positioning ship bow thruster

Offshore

Positioning ship bow thruster

Wish: Position a steerable bow thruster.
Solution: A three-phase motor with MIG encoder rotates the propeller 360° on the vertical axis in the azimuth bow thruster. This provides propulsion, steering and positioning thrust and superior maneuverability.

Driving shale shakers

Offshore

Driving shale shakers

Wish: Remove large solids from drilling fluid on a drilling platform with shale shakers.
Solution: Shaker bed linear motion produced by at least two vibration motors, adaptable to all types of mud and chips.

Skinning fish fillets

Sea fishing & fish farm

Skinning fish fillets

Wish: Automatic skinning machine for very fine, delicate work.
Solution: A mechanically adjustable smooth roller applies minimum pressure to fillets for optimal yield. Motor variator for adjustable roller processing speed.

Driving and controlling jack systems

Ports & cargo transfer

Driving and controlling jack systems

Wish: Drive and control jack systems.
Solution: Jack system with advanced VFD and variable speed planetary drives. The VFD system provides controlled start and accurate speed control for improved efficiency.

Driving and operating winches

Ports & cargo transfer

Driving and operating winches

Wish: Drive winches moving heavy machinery or cargo on a cargo vessel.
Solution: VFD, encoder feedback and a simple handheld control panel for easy crane positioning and safe cargo moving.

Debearding mussels

Sea fishing & fish farm

Debearding mussels

Wish: Automatic debearding of mussels.
Solution: Two contra-rotating shafts pull beards off the mussels. A helical bevel gear unit with C5 marine coating drives the profiled shafts with VFD speed control.

Driving offshore pipe-laying system

Offshore

Driving pipe-laying system

Wish: Offshore pipelayer with pipe fed from reels and laid via tension rollers. Solution: Robust electric motors with an advanced electrical system to control the tension in the pipe even when the vessel is moving.
