Salt-laden air and high humidities can place a lot of stress on electrical equipment installed in systems on ships and in coastal areas. This is the reason why renowned marine classification societies formulate strict regulations regarding supplementary qualifications also for electric motors. SIMOTICS DP marine motors satisfy the specifications of leading marine classification societies (BV, DNV, GL, LR, RS, KR, ABS, RINA). For example, they are fully adapted to operate at higher ambient temperatures below deck. When required – or if the society`s regulations specify it - a representative of the marine classification society can be present in our factories to formally accept equipment. We also have motors specifically designed for on-deck operation. These have been designed so that they reliably function even when briefly flooded by waves.
The type-tested SIMOTICS DP marine motors are available with aluminum or with cast iron enclosure – both in a standard version as well as versions for hazardous zones. They have been specifically designed and certified for below-deck applications, e.g. for auxiliary drives in fans, pumps and compressor drives – as well as for the offshore industry, e.g. on drilling rigs.

Examples of auxiliary drives on ships:
•Pumps, fans and compressors (e.g. for HVAC systems, water for firefighting and cooling, fuels, oils)
•Winches (anchor and mooring winches, lifting gear)
•Bow thruster drives
