Siemens: BlueDrive PlusC

The BlueDrive PlusC is an innovative sustainable solution for ship propulsion. This holistic approach to diesel-electric vessels increases safety, cuts operational costs, improves lifecycle economics and decreases the environmental footprint.

An essential part of the BlueDrive PlusC propulsion system is its variable-speed generator sets (gensets). The generators are purpose-built, brushless and synchronous, and deliver a wide range of frequencies and voltage for diesel, dual-fuel or gas-operated vessels. At all times, BlueDrive PlusC controls the engines to achieve optimal speed set points based on torque capability and most-efficient fuel consumption. To avoid overload, engine capability is constantly monitored. The result is a very flexible system that runs optimally through all operations.
