Next level of electrical power

New solutions to increase energy efficiency

In addition to naval, mechanical and dual-fuel solutions to increase the energy efficiency of vessels, IHC provides a mix of innovative electrotechnical technologies. These help to meet all power requirements, and reduce fuel and life-cycle costs. IHC’s solutions can be applied individually or combined, and include:

  • MV-variable frequency drives
  • DC-grid
  • hybrid equipment.
  • Energy efficient in all operational conditions
  • Reductions in CAPEX and weight    
  • Efficient utilisation and operation of vessels    
  • Universally applicable on every type of newly built vessel    
  • Total integration with platform and mission equipment control

Main features

MV-frequency drives:

  • reduced weight, volume, heat dissipation and short-circuit levels at higher power
