The marine industry is constantly under pressure to reduce environmental impacts, optimise the performance of critical applications and meet strict documentation requirements.

Applications on ships and other maritime areas must be able to operate safely and reliably in demanding environments where the motor and other electrical components are often exposed to vibration, salt and humidity. In addition, there are special needs such as explosion proof EX and ATEX motors or extreme temperatures.

This requires a careful approach with focus on quality, service, documentation, flexibility and great insight into the market's special challenges and needs.

Typical applications

Electric motors are part of a wide range of applications in the marine industry.

These include air supply compressors, ventilators to maintain optimal air quality, pumps for liquid transfer and circulation, winches for lifting and towing operations, HPUs (hydraulic power units) for hydraulic systems, thrusters for propulsion and scrubber systems for emission control.

For decades, Hoyer has built up in-depth knowledge of the marine industry and today cooperates with leading OEM manufacturers, shipyards and ship owners. From Arctic icebreakers to bulk cranes on the Amazon, Hoyer's electric motors operate applications such as pumps, winches and thrusters on board LNG carriers, cruise ships, ferries, trawlers and many other ship types.

We can protect marine motors from the harsh elements, provide relevant documentation and help our customers comply with international environmental legislation.
