Decide yourself how much HP or kW you need
The interest in (diesel) electric propulsion has grown immensely lately, with a view to fuel economy and reduced emissions. These are mostly ships with (diesel) electric propulsion and multiple generator sets on-board, which together provide the full propulsion power supply. When full power is not needed a few generators can be switched off to reduce fuel consumption.
Scania is particularly well known across the world as a producer of trucks. Minimising emissions has become a major issue in the transport market and it has developed much further in this regard than other market sectors.
With Scania as its in-house brand Veth Propulsion is capable of delivering generator sets that meet the strictest emission standards within the maritime sector.
