Rapid planning and acceptance with pre-certified marine motors

02.04.2015
  • Motor designs with outputs ranging from 0.18 to 200 kilowatt (kW)
  • Choice of efficiency classes from IE1 to IE4 enables significant energy savings
  • Usable in combination with converters as an Integrated Drive System (IDS)

With Simotics DP, Siemens is offering below-deck marine motors based on the proven 1LE1 platform. With an aluminum or grey cast iron housing, as a standard version or in a special version for potentially explosive areas, these motors are available in a wide spectrum of outputs ranging from 0.18 to 200 kW. Their capacity for operation at up to 500 volts (V) at the converter allows these line motors to also form part of Integrated Drive Systems, and so enhancing the efficiency of the entire drive train.

Marine motors do not fall within the scope of the European Motor Directive 640/2009, which defines the currently valid eco design regulations for electric motors in industrial applications. Despite this, with its Simotics DP marine motors portfolio and the option of individual efficiency class selection from IE1 to IE4, Siemens is still offering users enormous scope for energy saving.

The absence of jumps in the shaft height between the efficiency classes IE1 and IE4 and the different outputs available make for significantly simplified upgrading or modernization of overall systems, providing the assurance of a secure high-level investment over the long term. The integrated Simotics DP motor product spectrum with outputs ranging from 0.18 to 200 kW is based on the familiar 1LE1 platform, and also includes motors for potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX motors).

The motors are available with an aluminum or grey cast iron housing. The output range varies depending on the version: motors in an aluminum housing range from 0.37 to 45 kW, in a grey cast iron housing from 0.18 to 200 kW, and in the explosion-proof version for zones 2/21/22 from 0.37 to 200 kW. All versions are pre-certified for use below deck by the ships classification and certification bodies DNV, GL, BV, LRS, RS, KR, ABS and RINA.

This saves time for the customer primarily during planning and acceptance of the completed ship. In terms of planning and its flexibility, the user also benefits from the availability of the motors in both a line variant and for operation at a converter. Used in combination with a Sinamics frequency converter, the Simotics DP motor creates an Integrated Drive System (IDS), so additionally increasing the energy efficiency of the drive independently of the energy efficiency class of the motor itself.

The motors are used predominantly in shipbuilding applications, in ship compressors, feed pumps and winches. They are also used for port cranes and hydraulic pumps mounted on platforms.

As pre-certified Simotics DP marine motors are available in a choice of efficiency classes from IE1 to IE4, customers are able to benefit from enormous energy saving potential. The different versions and output ranges are designed to comply with widely differing requirements.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
