Integrated Front-end Power System

The Integrated Front-end Power System consists of a single-stage gear unit, one or multiple generators and associated frequency converters as well as the transformers for the connection to the ship’s grid.

The main advantage is that the system’s power rating is scalable from 500 kW up to 2,000 kW without the demand of additional axial space.
