New High-efficiency Ship Power & Propulsion System Patented
E-MS receives protection-rights by the European patent office for its power supply systems for ships & offshore platforms.
The company develops and realizes diesel- and gas-electric power supply and propulsion systems with un-synchronized generators, a common DC energy bus bar and water-cooled high-tech converters.
For this technology, that runs under the product name E-PP (Electric Power Packs), the company applied at the European patent- office for corresponding protection-rights, which lately were given under the number 2090508 dating from January 16, 2008.
E-MS has installed its systems onboard eight river cruise vessels, which were classified by Germanischer Lloyd.
The company states that some more ships with such installations are in the planning phase and under construction. In addition, E-MS is working on projects that go far beyond the application on inland waterway vessels, besides others on a comprehensive system for a mega-yacht.

In principle, this technology is suitable for all electric power supply and propulsion systems, particularly for those with strongly fluctuating load-profiles.
