Marine propulsion systems. Full steam ahead.
Whether for commercial or personal use, ships have for centuries been one of the most popular and versatile modes of transportation. For that reason, safety, reliability and efficiency are among the basic requirements of marine propulsion systems. ZF Marine, a world leader in the design and development of complete propulsion systems for all types of vessels, guarantees products of superior technology and quality.
Pleasure craft transmissions: The range of ZF Marine transmissions for the pleasure craft segment is designed for ship engines of up to 1,340 kW (1800 bhp) output. The mechanically actuated “M” series transmissions are primarily installed in sailboats and small motor-propelled craft, while the hydraulically actuated transmissions are used in a wide variety of motor yachts.
Fast craft transmissions: Megayachts, customs, navy and coastguard vessels, and fast ferries all require compact, high-performance transmissions. Most of these transmissions are specially designed for these applications and configured to meet the ship designers’ needs.
Commercial craft transmissions: Heavy-duty gearboxes with cast-iron casings and deep ratios are fitted into all types of commercial vessels, from tugs to tankers, fishing boats and container ships. The largest gearbox series is based on a modular design and includes reversing, non-reversing and simple reduction transmissions with no clutch.
