A new technology for speed and power control of larger machinery operated via AC motor drives
has been introduced to the shipping market. The patented STADT STASCHO Sinus drive technology was first
delivered to the seismic research vessel “Sanco Star “of Norway, operated by RXT. In this case the drives were
used for the fully-electric main propulsion for the ship, driving two propellers each of 2500 kW. The first 18 months
of operation offshore Brazil for Petrobras have clearly demonstrated the qualities of the new system.
