Marine Propulsion Technology Is Being Put to the Test

Trends such as slow steaming, dual fuel, exhaust gas reduction, hybrid propulsion and LNG as fuel describe are increasing powertrain complexity. In this light, demands for intelligent automation solutions make perfect sense. The portfolio for the intrinsically safe WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 enables you to automate LNG propulsion systems or retrofit scrubber and filter systems for exhaust gas reduction.

The 750 XTR Series components are specifically bolstered for use with particularly high or low ambient temperatures, extreme vibration or EMC conditions. Our power supply modules are designed for more stringent availability and reliability requirements. In the event of a fault, single- and multi-phase power supplies and buffer modules ensure automation system availability. Protection of the secondary circuits is conveniently provided via remote-controlled electronic fuses. Energy measurement modules for diesel electric propulsion systems and an extensive portfolio of signal converters and signal amplifiers complete the product range.

Using Urea Against Nitrogen Oxides

Diesel engines are currently at the center of environmental debates – not only in the auto industry, but also in maritime shipping. This is because ocean-going vessels can generate substantial amounts of environmentally damaging pollutants. The nitrogen oxides (NOx) created specifically during the combustion of diesel fuels are considered hazardous to human health, as they can damage the respiratory tract and the cardiovascular system. Göteborgs Energy Systems AB (GESAB) manufactures systems with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for use in diesel engines in larger ships. As a result, nitrogen oxide emissions are substantially reduced.

Zero Emissions, Doubly Safeguarded

Supported by the Arctic University of Norway in Narvik (UiT) and funded by the Norwegian government, the shipbuilders at Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted (GMV) have developed an energy management system (EMS) for a zero-emission ship with an all-electric drive. This visionary project was realized with the help of WAGO, which contributed to the central automation.

The Lake is Calm and Still

Embedded in a stunning, idyllic mountain setting, Lake Lucerne provides a traditional atmosphere with its fjord-like straights and winding inlets. Right in the middle of this beauty is a daily shipping route bearing tourists between Lucerne and other popular travel destinations, like Weggis and Bürgenstock. While it may sound less than idyllic, it actually boasts an intriguing eco-friendly twist. The MS Bürgenstock, the new motorized vessel belonging to the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV), sports a quiet and fuel-efficient hybrid drive. Aventics, a specialist of hybrid drive controls in ships headquartered in Laatzen, ensures optimum control between the electric motors and diesel engines. Several years ago, Aventics expanded their solutions by using the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750.
