Be it shipbuilding or offshore wind power platforms – the supplier industry in Germany is the second largest in the world after Japan. The pressure on the industry is immense: On the one hand, stiff competition is forcing shipping companies to offer their services at competitive prices, and on the other hand increasingly strict international standards require investments in environmental technologies. Greater efficiency and lower fuel consumption are the key factors here. “Smart shipping,” no-crew concepts, and modern drive technology are shaping the maritime future.
The bevel gears and cylindrical gears that are used in the drive and control systems in shipbuilding must demonstrate their outstanding reliability and durability, even under the most extreme external conditions. The wide range of component diameters requires extensive bevel gear expertise for controlling the production process. Klingelnberg's many years of experience and its certification by all major classification societies are the guarantee of maximum product quality.
