Marine Applications

  • Container

    Containerization has greatly reduced the expense of international trade and increased its throughput, especially in relation to consumer goods and commodities. As of today, some 90% of non-bulk cargo worldwide is moved by containers stacked aboard container vessels.

  • Tanker

    Tankers were first used by the oil industry to transfer refined fuel in bulk from refineries to customers but today are also used to transport a vast variety of products such as chemicals, fresh water, wine and molasses.
    Modern tankers vary in size from smaller, local, coastal tankers to VLCCs (Very Large Crude Carriers), some of the largest vessels found sailing the oceans.

  • Cruise

    As global wealth has grown in recent decades and the concept of enjoying a foreign holiday has become standard for many people, so accordingly has the cruise trade grown. Once the preserve of the very rich, cruises are now affordable to many and this segment has experienced significant growth.

  • Tug

    The global growth in marine transport and the accompanying increase in the volume and complexity of harbour operations have expanded the tug sector in recent years. Simultaneously, the general increase in vessel size, such as that experienced within the container ship sector, has prompted the development of larger, more powerful tugs.

  • Offshore

    As living standards rise globally, modern society’s demand for energy continues to grow. In connection with this, global drilling operations are expanding. As the original hydrocarbon reservoirs – typically discovered in shallower, more accessible waters – experience a drop in production, modern drilling operations are beginning to move into deeper waters to find new sources of energy.

  • Dredger

    With the growth in the global economy and, accordingly, in global sea transport and the size of marine vessels, greater demands have been placed on harbors and commercial waterways around the world. Part of the solution lies in excavating channel beds and modern dredgers are capable of excavating gigantic volumes of sediment daily.

  • Bulker

    The first, dedicated bulk carrier was built in the middle of the 19th century, since which time economic forces have furthered their development, causing them to grow in size and sophistication. Modern bulk carriers prioritize capacity, safety, efficiency and durability.

  • Fishing

    As with so many other marine segments, population growth is one of the primary market drivers in the fishing industry, in this case revolving around the need for ever-more food resources. Fishing restrictions are another key influence as legislation forces the construction of modern, cost-optimized vessels that can operate profitably.

  • Navy & Coast Guard

    The Navy & Coast Guard segment has grown in recent years in the face of national security concerns where nations are anxious to protect their maritime boundaries. At the same time, the growth of asymmetric threats, such as piracy, has increased the desire to provide security for world seaborne trade.

  • Ferry

    Driven by the global growth in population and an increase in regional trade, the mobility of people – both domestically and internationally – has increased rapidly in recent decades. Modern ferries place high demands for reliability and comfort on their main engines, while silent power generation onboard is also a crucial consideration when thinking gensets.

  • LNG

    Global energy demands continue to rise year after year as existing oil reservoirs become depleted and the search for replacements spreads to deeper parts of the ocean, requiring massive investment costs. A general change in energy politics has nuclear and coal power losing popularity while gas from the US and Middle-East is emerging as a viable alternative.

    More

  • LPG

    LPG is manufactured during the refining of petroleum (crude oil), or extracted from petroleum or natural gas streams as they emerge from the ground. Representing an alternative to LNG, LPG production has a modest share of the global energy market but continues to grow steadily.
