Up to 7,000 operating hours per year, high performance requirements and the greatest possible maneuverability - these are the demands made of work boats. In order to meet these demands, diesel-electric drive systems, in conjunction with steering propeller drives, are more and more frequently being used with these kinds of ships.
In diesel engines drive generators, the generated energy is used to drive electric motors that in turn drive the corresponding rotatable steering propeller drive.
