Energy Efficiency in Global Shipping

The Shaft Generator system has over the past three decades been successfully employed on board ships worldwide. The main advantage is the usage of Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) operated Main Engines for electrical power production – thus significantly reducing the running hours of Auxiliary Generators. However, generating a ship’s electrical power by means of a Shaft Generator has imposed a great disadvantage: constant speed operation of the propulsion machinery. The WE DriveTM system from WE Tech Solutions removes this need for constant speed operation by utilising variable frequency drive technologies in shaft generator systems. You can see us as the last piece in the puzzle of achieving superior energy efficiency in global shipping.
