Lower emissions, fuel and other operational costs

When talking about marine, a whole ship comes to mind. A ship includes most of the applications found on shore just concentrated on a limited space. The applications span from sewage water to treatment of the exhaust gas.
Although Danfoss has products suited for many of these applications, we are concentrating on the equipment placed in and around the engine room and propulsion system.

Equipment areas of interest in connection with the marine segment are:

  • Off-shore:Durable components for harsh operational conditions and increased safety for personnel and marine environments.
  • Power plants: Reduced CO2 and NOx emissions. Helping achieve better fuel economy, smarter service and increased safety.
  • Auxiliary systems: Components ready for alternative fuels and improved safety from first-class automation components
  • Engines and propulsion systems: Reduced CO2, NOx and SOx emissions as well as smarter service and increased marine safety.

Our pressure transmitters and temperature sensors are playing a significant role for manufacturers of marine diesel or gas combustion engines in order to be ready for the world’s demands of tomorrow.

Thanks to close cooperation with leading engine manufacturers, our pressure and temperature controls are suitable for the different eco-friendly engine solutions. On board many of today’s container ships, bulk carriers, oil tankers and cruise ships, Danfoss sensors monitor pressure and temperature in a variety of engine applications. This enables ships to lower their emissions as well as fuel and other operational costs.
