ON THE OPEN SEA IN A SAFE HARBOR
The wind is also turning in the shipping industry – whether for ferries, fishing ships, container ships or cruise ships. The number of zero emission zones in ecologically sensitive waters is rising rapidly: ships that rely purely on combustion engines are no longer allowed to enter these restricted areas! This means strong wind in the sails of environmentally friendly, emission-free propulsion systems. Quiet, clean and efficient is the maxim.
At sea, the technical requirements for performance and long-term reliability of batteries and/or fuel cells are even higher than on land. This is in line with the technology and innovation expertise of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. We cannot change the wind, but we can change the course. We therefore equip ships with modular, individually configurable battery and fuel cell systems. And, as the supreme discipline, we offer integrated hybrid drive solutions that ideally combine the advantages of batteries and fuel cells.
