Electric Drive AED

A complete propulsion module is now available, known as the RENK AED (Advanced Electric Drive).

Electric propulsion represents a technically proven and increasingly popular option for Naval vessels, Megayachts and Research vessels. The majority of those vessels requires low noise operation while aiming for compact, weight optimized propulsion equipment.
RENK’s AED concept offers a perfect combination of desired characteristics. The geared motor solution for increased power density is combined with sophisticated noise reduction measures including soft elastic mounting and flexible coupling.

The RENK AED integrates perfectly with the onboard electrical system and may be used as the only electric propulsion or in combination with other prime movers such as diesel engines or gas turbines through a combined power transmission system also available from RENK.
