Networking for seafaring solutions
Finland’s ABB Marine and Ports unit in Helsinki, Vuosaari and Hamina, develops electrification and automation solutions for marine industry needs. The spearhead product of the unit is the electric Azipod® propulsion system that promotes the fuel economy, energy efficiency and runnability of cruisers, icebreakers, ro-ro ferries and tankers, among others.
Fuel saving is based on uninterrupted water flow in propellers. Thanks to a 360 ° swivel control unit, the Azipod propeller system has a better steering ability, is quieter, and space usage within the ship is more efficient. Thanks to good maneuverability, safety also improves considerably.
