EPD, Siemens Form Solutions Partnership

(Press Release)
Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Electronic Power Design, Inc. (EPD) and Siemens Industry, Inc. Drive Technologies today announced that the companies have formed a solutions partnership for Siemens ELFA R hybrid propulsion systems.  Siemens recently released its newly designed ELFA hybrid propulsion system, which offers considerably enhanced fuel consumption, range, redundancy, and maneuverability.

The Siemens ELFA successfully closes the gap between large merchant vessels and small recreational and commercial crafts traditionally powered by mechanical propulsion solutions.  The standardized plug and operate solution further reduces the time/effort required for installation and integration into the vessel.

Siemens Hybrid Control Software enables realization and control of different operational modes on a vessel:

             Diesel electric mode

             Pure electric mode

             Hybrid mode

 “EPD continues to demonstrate its technological competency for Siemens products being a Solutions Partner for almost twenty-years,” said John Norwood EPD’s Vice President of Business Development.  “EPD has maintained an excellent relationship with Siemens and has continued to provide the technological and specific applications expertise utilizing Siemens products  worldwide.”

EPD will integrate the ELFA system components with engines, gearboxes, the vessel control system and stored energy devices as needed and tailored for the customer’s application.  EPD will also be responsible for system engineering, service, programming and implementation of Siemens Industry ELFA R propulsion system.
