RENK wins first order for hybrid drive
The maritime sales team of RENK’s Rheine plant has won its first new construction project for its MARHY maritime hybrid system.
MARHY enables ships with two-stroke engines to efficiently generate onboard power supply by using the main engine (PTO-operation). In addition, a fully electric drive (PTH-operation) is available for zones with low emissions zones and for emergencies.
The newbuild is a 30,000m3 LNG carrier owned by Knutsen OAS. It is equipped with a 600kW two-stroke main engine and is the first of this size. RENK's scope of delivery includes a tunnel gearbox (type SHHII1600), a fully-automatic PSC-85 (propeller shaft clutch), elastic couplings and, for the first time, key electric components which include a 1MW generator/e-motor as well as the corresponding frequency converter. RENK is also responsible for the system integration
After completion at the Hyundai Mipo shipyard in South Korea, it will be stationed in the Italian Mediterranean Sea and operated by Milan-based Edison Energy SpA. The LNG carrier is part of an infrastructure strategy which provides for the construction of several LNG depots along the Italian coast.
