Propulsion units, from engine to propeller
NORDHAVN is a strong supplier when it comes to propulsion units and complete marine installations, as e.g. our engine packages for the Swedish Docksta boats. We cooperate on all levels with shipyards, and ship owners, harbour workshops and consulting naval architects. Our product range covers almost everything from engine to propeller, complete installations or single components: engines, gear boxes, propellers, control and monitoring systems, you name it.
Our engine program is concentrated around SCANIA engines from 300 - 638 HP and SISU Diesel engines from 130 - 410 HP, with or without heat exchangers.
All engines have documented low fuel consuption and meet NOx emission rules. EIAPP certificate is included when required.
Propulsion units and engines are supported by NORDHAVN Service Team, on ad hoc basis or via service management and with 24 hours parts guarantee.
SCANIA diesel engines in the Navy's lægtvandsfartøj ”Miljø 103”
The Navy in Denmark has taken the new vessel ”Miljø 103” in use which NORDHAVN has delivered the diesel engines for. The vessel is able to collect oil on very shallow water as shallow as under one meter. Therefore, the new vessel can, as the only vessel in the Navy, collect oil on shallow water and fulfil a big need in the oil pollution readiness.
Focus on fuel economy
The vessel has a maximum speed of more that 20 knot and is thereby the fastest ship in the Navy. In cooperation with Hvide Sande Skibs- og baadebyggeri A/S, NORDHAVN A/S has delivered a special designed propulsion unit meeting all the requirements for the vessel. One of the requirements for the vessel was the importance of minimising the total costs in the long run and as the SCANIA engines are very cost efficient there are huge cost savings to make as the engines have low fuel consumption.
No noise from the engine room
The two 12 litres SCANIA engines in the engine room is each 404 kW but it is not noise from the engines you hear during sailing even though the maximum speed is around 20 knots. The engines are each equipped with a two step exhaust silencer from HMI making sure there is silence from the engine room. At full speed the two engines use in total 210 litres of fuel per hour and the vessel has the capacity to keep this speed for 14 hours before refuelling.
