IHC Drives and Automation presents its innovative medium voltage (MV) drive at this year’s Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo. Designed exclusively for the marine industry, this vital on board component provides a simple, flexible and economical means of integrating and controlling the speed of purpose-built motors.

Based on a modular approach, the compact IHC MV drive helps to save space and weight, optimising the overall design of a vessel and its equipment. In addition, it connects directly to the fresh water cooling system and remains free from dust and dirt particle pollution, which further reduces maintenance requirements and increases uptime.

The MV drive is designed to withstand harsh marine environments, and is fully integrated within IHC’s vessel automation platform to maximise compatibility and user-friendliness.

To find out more about IHC’s MV drive and how it can benefit a wide range of operations, please come and talk to the experts from IHC Drives and Automation during the event.

“IHC Drives and Automation designs, engineers and builds complete electrical systems and the automation to control all equipment on board a vessel,” says Senior Specialist Pieter Vos. “The development of our advanced MV drive takes us one step further in our goal to deliver an integrated solution to our customers, which will fully optimise the design of their equipment – and their entire operation."
