SMM 2016 - Becker Marine Systems to Present Product Innovation
Becker Marine Systems will be represented at two stands at this year’s SMM, the leading international maritime trade fair, being held from 6th to 9th September. The world market leader for high-performance rudders and energy-saving solutions would like to inform attendees of the world’s largest shipbuilding trade fair about both its traditional products and its experiences with “cold ironing” using liquefied natural gas (LNG).
“That’s why we’ll be presenting our three product lines of Manoeuvring Systems, Energy-Saving Devices and LNG Hybrid Concepts at the usual location – our main stand in Hall A1 (stand A1.225)“, said Dirk Lehmann and Henning Kuhlmann, the two Managing Directors of Becker Marine Systems. In addition, Becker subsidiary Hybrid Port Energy (HPE) will be premiering an exhibition stand of its own. HPE will be presenting its alternative solutions for shore-side power supply in Hall A5 (stand A5.200A), specifically dedicated to „Green Propulsion“, environmentallyfriendly propulsion technologies showcasing SMM’s issue of the future. The company is banking on the use of low-emission LNG fuel as a beacon of hope for the maritime industry. Apart from the LNG Hybrid Barge used to supply energy to cruise ships while berthed at port, the company’s successful products also include the LNG PowerPac®, a specially-designed modular container system used to supply power to container ships and other types of vessels.
“The focus of the fair will once again be on innovative ideas resulting in energy savings and an accompanying reduction in operating costs”, said Lehman and Kuhlmann. This is where Becker Marine Systems is perfectly positioned with its core products, versatile high-performance rudders as well as the Becker Mewis Duct® and Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted energy-saving devices. The exclusive introduction of a new Becker Marine Systems product segment is being eagerly awaited at SMM 2016. The company will be introducing its latest product innovation at a press conference being held at its exhibition stand in Hall A1 at 11:00 am on 7th September 2016. Media representatives will be receiving a separate invitation to the event.
