Optimum operation of the drive unit
Mega yachts, predominantly located in the luxury sector, make particularly high demands on the drive unit’s running behavior. In most cases, high-performance, fast-running, but lightweight construction four-stroke diesel engines are used to drive propellers or water jets. This and other characteristics of shipbuilding require the use of specially adapted, power dense, high misalignment and structure-borne noise reducing coupling solutions, often combined with weight-optimized shafts. For this application as well, VULKAN enable the optimum operation of the drive unit through components adapted to one another, such as highly flexible RATO S, RATO R and VULKARDAN F couplings, elastic mounts and composite shafts.
