    Diesel- and Gas Electric Propulsion

    Sandfirden Technics develops hybrid ship propulsion systems in cooperation with Liebherr Components. Within the framework of the cooperation, Sandfirden Technics assumes the role of the primary point of contact for customers and provides a complete
    one-stop solution.

    Innovative, economically efficient and eco-friendly
    Our system is an modular innovative electric propulsion drive system for ships which is greatly superior to conventional combustion engine drives. This system reaches its economic efficiency with a significant decrease of operational costs and a distinct increase in reliability. The system decreases energy consumption and the pollutant emission considerably. Only the energy actually required by the drive system is consumed.

    A modular direct drive moves the propelling screw via a propulsion engine with variable driving speed
    This innovation makes it possible to keep the rotation speed always in the optimum range of performance – only the actually required engine performance is made available.

    • OPEX costs are lowered significantly
    • Energy consumption and pollutant emission are reduced considerably
    • The mobility of the ship is improved
    • The risk of a drive failure is reduced (redundant)
    • Less noise and less heat radiation
    • Very low propeller revolutions
    • Creates flexibility in the Design of Ships
    • Modular design

    This drive system can be used for:

    • Inland Shipping
    • Tugs
    • Dredgers
    • Fishing Vessels
    • Ferries
    • Superyachts
    • Short Sea Shipping
