The sustainability in the marine industry is at full speed. Not least because legislators, but also customers, are urging to sail cleaner and more efficiently. Danfoss supports the sector by providing its standard frequency converters with new software to perform all facets of electrical energy conversion. By applying specific software you can use the same drive as a so-called DC-DC converter to charge and discharge batteries and to convert a varying battery voltage into a stable DC voltage or vice versa.
The Danfoss VACON® NXP Grid Converter, recently awarded with the exclusive Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label, provides an alternative source of power for ships in port, which plays a key role in reducing fuel consumption, improving efficiency and thus reaching emission targets (carbon, nitrogen and sulfur). By sourcing electrical power from the on-shore electricity grid via a set of cables, ships no longer have to rely on their auxiliary diesel engines to generate electrical power for communications, lighting and other on-board equipment.
In our Application Development Center in Gorinchem we offer expert support and state-of-the-art test facilities for your business. With our ADC we are ready to support our customers and System integrators with innovative solutions which have not (yet) or fully been tested. This can include monitoring an innovative panel or testing a new propulsion system for a luxurious ship. Especially for the shipping industry it’s profitable to test systems in advance and shorten expensive commissioning time on board.
