Whether in luxurious cruise ships such as the AIDAcosma, in fancy mega yachts or imposing work ships such as the giant Pioneering Spirit - VULKAN, as a leading player in the field of marine drive technology, specialized herself early on in marine propulsion and generator systems. Components of VULKAN's marine drive technology can be found in a wide variety of ship types and generator applications all over the world: Highly flexible couplings, cardan shaft couplings or other drive components are used here.
Torsional vibration calculation and acoustics
The use of flexible couplings on diesel engines requires a sophisticated combination of torque transmission, misalignment compensation and torsional vibration damping. This vibration occurs in the diesel engine and propeller. Without vibration damping the drive system would be damaged severely.
