Marine Motors

General description

On basis of the known and proven platform 1LE1 certified SIMOTICS DP ship motors are now available.
As consequent continuation of the spectrum motors with aluminum housing and with cast iron housing can be chosen as standard versions as well as versions for hazardous areas.
Specially designed for use on ships below deck and for the offshore industry, our marine motors meet the requirements of the leading classification authorities and have type-test certificates up to 200 kW output.
Especially for on-deck use on ships, we offer our special range of motors for on-deck applications; these continue to run perfectly even after being completely immersed by a wave.
