Tailored solutions for any type of vessel

The design of a diesel-electric propulsion plant differs a lot from one vessel to another. The diverse types of vessels and their different operational profiles force to analyze each case.

The advantages of a diesel – electric propulsion can be summarized as the following:

  • Manoeuvrability
  • Fuel savings
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Reduced emissions
  • Low vibrations which translates in a higher comfort on board
  • Optimal utilization of onboard space
  • Flexibility in choosing speed ranges of diesel engines

MAIN SOLUTIONS together with other companies of Grupo Emenasa , can suppy the wide range of products of a diesel-electric propulsion, from the main switchboard to propeller. However, it is not just about delivering stand alone equipment, we combine components to optimize the operation and efficiency of the propulsion plant.

MAIN SOLUTIONS is in charge of the design, supply and commissioning of the electrical equipment of the propulsion plant.

We study integrated propulsions for:

  • Diesel – electric propulsions
  • Auxiliary electric propulsions
  • Hybrid propulsions with batteries
  • PTI-PTO shaft generators running at variable speed
