Siemens Drive Technologies Division has been awarded a contract worth tens of millions of Euros from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) to supply eco-friendly propulsion and power generation systems in 18,000 TEU Triple E class containerships being built for Maersk Line.
The scope of the Siemens supply will include shaft generator motors and power generation systems,
The Triple E Class ships will have a twin propulsion system, with two slow running ultra-long stroke engines that drive separate propellers. They will have two 3 MW Shaft Generator Motors (SGM) power generation systems from Siemens Drive Technologies with Waste Heat Recovery Systems (WHR). Through the WHR the exhaust gas from the engine is captured and used to run the combined exhaust gas/steam turbine genset which generates electrical energy.
