Single-engine marine gear unit RSH
RENK AG is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of marine gear units. As a specialist for single and double-motor gear units as well as for propeller shaft couplings, we are a preferred partner for the development of innovative marine gear unit solutions for gas tankers. A majority of gas tankers equipped with gas-diesel-electric propulsion systems (DFDE) uses single or double marine gear units from RENK. Double gear units are designed with center distances of up to 4,400 mm. Two electric engines are combined with a double gear unit in this case, and deliver a maximum output of 30,000 kW to the fixed pitch propeller.
