Leonardo DRS provides integrated electric drive (IED) and hybrid electric drive (HED) ship propulsion solutions. HED arrangements can be gear-mounted or shaft-mounted.
Our motor and drive systems provide advantages in flexibility, modularity and commonality; supporting requirements for fuel savings and growing power efficiency demands on future ships.
Regardless of fuel prices, the more often you have to re-fuel a ship - when you are alongside the re-fueling ship - you are more vulnerable ... an HED propulsion system gives you more time on station and less time at risk.
