Clean, renewable and predictable energy from tidal currents occurring in coastal waters
Extremely valuable commodity on platforms everywhere. The high-tech units can be completely submerged in the sea water, with the advantage that no pump room is required to install the pumps.
Exhaust gas cleaning technology to meet requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
Flue gas desulphurization with low operating and maintenance cost for coastal regions.
ANDRITZ develops and manufactures submersible motors for various fields of application in water supply, mining and offshore.
A comprehensive range of technologies for marine, offshore and subsea applications
Offshore and subsea applications require solutions for the most extreme operating conditions.
The products of ANDRITZ HYDRO fulfill the demanding requirements placed by customers and certification authorities in the hydropower energy, oil, and gas industries all over the world. Depending on the industry concerned, several offshore products and solutions are available, as follows:
Offshore hydropower energy production
Tidal current turbines operate according to the same principle as a horizontal axis wind turbine. The tidal current creates a torque on the rotor which is used to drive a step-up gearbox, and this in turn drives the asynchronous generator. Power quality is controlled by power electronics.
Sea water lift applications
Thanks to their design, submersible motor pumps create an extremely valuable commodity on platforms everywhere. The high-tech units can be completely submerged in the sea water, with the advantage that no pump room is required to install the pumps. They are absolutely maintenance-free and can be installed easily and flexibly without any limitations on depths.
