Siemens wins order from DSME to equip Maersk container ships with eco-friendly propulsion and power generation systems

Siemens Drive Technologies Division has been awarded a contract worth tens of millions of Euros from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) to implement eco-friendly propulsion and power generation system for the Maersk Line's E-class container ships.

Apart from administering shaft generator motors and a power generation system, Siemens will also furnish the company with expertise in power management and Waste Heat Recovery Control (WHR).

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) is the second largest shipbuilder in the world. In February 2011 the company entered into a contract with A. P. Moller-Maersk Group (Maersk Line) to build 20 Triple-E class vessels. These triple-E class ships signify economy of scale, energy efficiency and environmentally improved vessels. The first generation will be the largest in the world, able to lift 18,000 containers (TEU). The first ten vessels are scheduled to be delivered in 2013 and 2014 and the second set is expected to be delivered in 2014 and 2015.

This, the largest and greenest next generation of container ships will have a twin propulsion system, with two slow running ultra-long stroke engines driving separate propellers pluis two 3 MW Shaft Generator Motors (SGM)

A core element of the service agreement is the development of effective maintenance programs.

The project is due to be completed in early 2015
