STADT NAVAL - NEW CONTRACT FOR DESIGN AND DELIVERY OF ELECTRIC PROPULSION SOLUTION FOR NEW NAVAL VESSELS FOR NATO COUNTRY - FULLFILLS STRICTEST REQUIREMENTS FOR LOW UNDERWATER RADIATED NOISE (URN) AND STEALTH LOW SIGNATURE.
As a leading vendor and system integrator of electric propulsion - STADT NAVAL has signed contract to design and supply complete electric propulsion solutions for series of new naval ships for a NATO country. This contract is the biggest ever in STADTs history. All further details are confidential due to strict non-disclosure-terms agreed with Customer.
With its unique and patented technology - STADT Lean Propulsion - STADT has achieved recognition from navies and countries around the world. STADT’s technology operates in STEALTH mode with guaranteed no electrical interference and no acoustic switching noise. This contributes to low underwater radiated noise (URN), and low signature for any vessel. In addition, the STADT technology has proven to have absolute minimum power loss, resulting in very low energy consumption and related low or no emission dependant of chosen fuel or power source for a vessel.
For the new navy-vessels, STADT will have the role as system-integrator and will supply main electric elements such as Main Switchboards, AC Lean-drives and AC motors for Thrusters ad Main Propulsion , and Power Management System as a complete integrated solution.
