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.




The electrification of drive technology is progressing much faster than expected. The pressure to act is increasing. Against this backdrop, the transport of goods and passengers cannot avoid electrification. We offer complete system solutions for trucks and delivery vehicles, buses, trains, ships as well as mining and construction vehicles. Customers place their trust in us, they rely on our innovative strength, quality, global presence and long-term financial solidity.
