LC Drives showcases motor/generator versatility in Electric & Hybrid Marine Technology International publication
April 2021 – The April publication of Electric & Hybrid Marine Technology International features LC Drives and the adaptability of its motors and generators in the marine industry.
The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) - comprising roughly 200 members in 90 countries - is dedicated to protecting the environment through the regulation of harbor emissions. With the establishment of the World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP), the IAPH is dedicated to working collaboratively with its diverse associates to plan and develop strategies to protect the environment and waterfront communities in conjunction with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) mandate to cut CO2 emissions by 5O% by 2050.
Electrifying harbors worldwide is the most effective way to reduce waterfront air emissions, benefiting community and environmental health. Significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the waterfront will improve air quality for the surrounding population and contribute to the IMO's overall mission. Furthermore, electrification will considerably reduce noise pollution from previously diesel-operated harbor craft, cranes, trucks and other support equipment.
Enabling this vision, US-based developer and manufacturer LC Drives has created an innovative approach to electric motor and generator design with its CoolSlot™ technology. This patented technology results in motors and generators that are substantially smaller, tighter, quieter and more efficient than conventional machines.
