A cargo ship full of shipping containers in port for unloading representing marine and offshore solutions by Danfoss

Waterway traffic is increasing and is having an impact on global transportation, the food chain, national defense, and even leisure time. More than 100,000 commercial and 25,000 naval vessels are operating globally. Currently 80% of all cargo passes through harbors, making them the world’s busiest hubs for bulk goods.

Look around a modern ship and you’ll find Danfoss hard at work reducing energy costs and emissions in the engine room and beyond.


On commercial and naval vessels, from cruise liners to cargo vessels to container ships, you can gain significant advantages in safety, speed, logistics, efficiency, as well as by reducing emissions to an absolute minimum. Choose from a wide array of Danfoss marine solutions for fire safety, clean water on-board, close monitoring of all engine functions, and accurate and flexible power conversion control to meet on-board and on-shore process needs.


You can gain the benefit of our extensive experience with ocean-, sea-, lake-, and river-going vessels that carry cargo or passengers, through to vessels that are built and equipped for special work at offshore sites, such as at wind farms or oil rigs.
