Logical solutions ...

Listening to customers, fulfilling needs and finding solutions which are often ‘outside the box’, has led to environmental friendly and efficient power transmission solutions made to measure.

For shipping:

The roots of D&A® electric lie in shipping. In the meantime, we have established a leading position in this market. The development of the frequency-controlled diesel-electric powertrain is a logical consequence of our extensive experience with a variety of drives. The D&A® Eprop concept delivers optimum fuel efficiency and unparalleled thrust/power ratio.

Offshore & ports:

For some years, D&A® electric makes power transmission drives tailored, for instance, for controlling various pumping installations in the offshore industry. The intelligent control system ensures that absorbed energy is automatically tuned to the process fluid, the inlet velocity and the distance travelled. Frequency-controlled drives are also widely used in cranes, winches and thrusters.


Variable-speed drives are used in a variety of industrial processes and devices in industry. For example, for controlling the rotational speed of fans via the engine. This ensures that the desired airflow is never greater than required. An additional advantage is noise level reduction. Other applications in industry are: conveyor belts, test benches and vacuum tanks.

Logical solutions... for shipping

The Eprop system is a frequency-controlled diesel-electric drive that allows a normal barge to use up to 40% less fuel without any loss of speed. This result is determined by a different way of looking at the entire vessel, it’s normal sailing behaviour and the desired speed. The propulsion train is adjusted accordingly and shows significantly better fuel returns.
