ELIN Motoren designs and manufactures air-cooled and water-cooled asynchronous motors with short-circuit and slip ring rotors as well as highly efficient PM synchronous motors and generators for the marine industry and various applications. ELIN Motoen offers drive solutions between the ranges of 200 kW up to 35 MW.

We offer customer-specific engineering services such as design, order processing and operation. The advantages of our individual machines are optimized engine design, low weight, highest degree of efficiency, durability as well as the highest level of reliability in operation.

Another vital part of our portfolio covers certified drive solutions according to the ‘International Association Of Classification Societies’ (IACS) such as ABS, DNV, LR, BV and further applications for the marine industry. The technical know-how and our profound and thorough experience in this field make us one of the global industry experts. As a result of our commitment combined with the highest of quality standards, we offer our customers unique benefits by choosing us as their partner. Our references and experiences are known worldwide such as projects on scientific research vessels, hybrid driving concepts for the marine industry as well as offshore support vessels (OSV) for wind farms in the North Sea or as support for the Navy, just to name a few.

Marine propulsion systems can be operated in various ways, with the choice of propulsion system depending on factors such as the size and purpose of the vessel and economic and environmental conditions. Main propulsion systems for diesel-electric ships require high efficiency and customized solutions. ELIN Motoren manufactures asynchronous and low-speed PM synchronous machines to drive trains without a gearbox efficiently. Our products are used for different applications on ships, such as main propulsion, thruster drives, PTI/PTO hybrid concepts, and auxiliary drives like winches, suction dredgers, or compressors.
