Renk To Focus On Products For Fast Speed Ferries
Renk AG will be presenting its product spectrum for marine applications at the upcoming SMM show, focusing on its products for fast-speed monohull and catamaran ferries. In this sector, Renk has recently been successful by supplying gear systems for almost 20 ferries, including five Aquastrada monohull vessels, four Incat catamarans and three B.C. Ferries. The prime movers are a pair of ABB turbines operating on heavy oil. The Rheine and Hannover Renk works will present some of its curved-tooth and raflex steel disc couplings, designed for offshore duty, and gears for pro- peller shafts with shaft diameters up to 1,100 mm.
