The story of the electrical ship propulsions started concurrent with the electrical drive engineering: In 1838 an electric motor with 220 W was built into a bucket wheel geared 8-meter boat for the first time. Nowadays electric motors are the focus of attention in the shipbuilding industry – especially in the form of hybrid drive concepts with diesel engines. Electrical direct drives are primarily interesting for the inland water transportation, tug boats or offshore vessels cause of their high torques at low speeds, the continuous high efficiency and the perfect ability to integrate.

As a specialist for industry and customer-specific drive solutions, Baumüller is a partner for ship chandlers and offers a large portfolio of suitable motors and converters for shipbuilding. We provide a broad range of torque motors with outputs from 3 to 530 kW and nominal speeds between 100 and 1500 mi-1. The output up to 1200 kW is in the preparation phase.
