Optimal propulsion for wind hybrids
At the SMM 2016 Business Development Manager, Kjartan Ross held a presentation on wind-mechanical hybrid propulsion of merchant ships at the International Wind Ship Association. Did you miss it? No worries, watch it here.
MAN Diesel & Turbo is ready to supply complete propulsion systems to support wind propulsions systems on vessels designed or retrofitted with wind hybrid propulsion. MAN Diesel & Turbo has a full range of propulsion system packages including fuel supply systems for gaseous fuels, main and auxiliary engines, exhaust gas after-treatment systems, shaft lines, gearboxes, propellers and propulsion control systems.
In the propulsion control systems this includes the unique MAN Alpha EcoSpeed Pilot – an option to the Alphatronic 3000 propulsion control system that will enable the propulsion system to fully automate supplement the wind propulsion system with the required trust to secure any desired constant speed within the speed range of the vessel making wind hybrid propulsion easier, more fuel efficient and more reliable.
