Friday, April 25, 2014

The focus of this year’s product and performance presentation by Vulkan Couplings at the Sea Japan are the specially integrated marine drive solutions for offshore ships. Vulkan Couplings has become known for its drive solutions for drill ships. The latest project was the equipment of six drill ships, built by the Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguacu shipyard for the Brazilian Charterer PETROBAS. Vulkan Couplings supplied the highly flexible couplings for the Caterpillar MaK 16CM32 gensets and the electric motors CAT 3516 B, as well as the torsionally rigid couplings and brakes for the Kawasaki steering propeller KST-320LF.
