DFDS selects ABB shaft generators for newbuild RoRos

DFDS is to fit ABB shaft generators to its newbuild vessels to increase energy efficiency.

  • Two shaft generators will be installed on each cargo RoRo ship. The generators will enable the main engines to have wider and more optimal speed ranges.
  • Shaft generators take power from main engines to increase safety if there is a failure on the auxiliary engine. Generators also allow the ship to shut down its auxiliary engines when at berth to reduce noise and emissions.
  • Vessels will be built by Jinling Shipyard, China, for ABB and delivered at the beginning of 2019.
