Danfoss Highlights Marine Electrification to Achieve Zero Carbon Goals
Ahead of COP27 in Egypt, Danfoss Drives, gathered leading marine experts to discuss how we can decarbonize the marine industry, at the "Electrification and Digitalization in Marine" event hosted by Imarest on Friday.
The event was supported by His Excellency Ambassador Lars Steen Nielsen, Head of the Royal Danish Consulate General in Dubai, who, as a panel participant, greeted the role of Danish companies, such as Danfoss, in decarbonizing marine.
Full electrification is a highly sustainable option for ferries, work boats, and other vessels which can charge batteries regularly. With full electrification combined with a renewable shore power supply, you achieve not only low but zero emissions from the ship.
Danfoss marine solutions work to reduce energy costs, monitor processes seamlessly, convert power optimally, and provide comfort for passengers.
Emre Goren, Regional Sales Director, Danfoss Drives for Turkey, Middle East, and Africa region said: "Danfoss Drives is the leading technology provider in marine electrification.
"Drives are key components in increasing the efficiency and lifetime of ship and port applications. At this event, we are proud to share the latest updates on Danfoss Drives solutions with our marine industry stakeholders."
Danfoss is hard at work in every corner of the ship and harbor, optimizing performance, ensuring reliability, reducing energy consumption, and reducing emissions. Each vessel type has individual needs and priorities in performance optimization, so the applications are adapted accordingly.
Electrifying maritime transport is a clear-cut way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The solutions are there both to build new electric ferries and to retrofit existing ferries to electrify them with the potential to reduce carbon emissions in lakes, cities, and straits all over the world.
Shekhar Kubal, Global Head of Marine and Electrification at Danfoss Drives said: "We welcome initiatives towards energy efficiency, hybrid and full electric solutions where Danfoss drives takes part through its Power Conversion portfolio.
"Our ambition is to help our partners and achieve electrification goals together. Because together we can create a sustainable future powered by electricity,"
