Invertek’s capability in the Marine sector on show

Invertek’s capabilities for the marine sector were highlighted once again at the Asia Pacific Maritime 2014 exhibition which took place in Singapore last month.

The high-performance motor control capability offered by Optidrive P2 and HVAC can be used in a number of different ship-building applications including thruster control, winch control, and fan and pump control. Invertek is certified by the DNV providing assurance to ship builders of both the quality and suitability of its products for their industry.

Invertek Drives Far East Pte Ltd exhibited at the show where it was joined by Invertek’s Technical Manager, Kes Beech, who attended as part of a two week trip to the region. Kes comments, “The exhibition provided an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the valuable role variable speed drives can play in ship-building.”

Regional Director, Henry Beh, said, “The maritime industry offers enormous opportunities for Invertek, particularly in Singapore where it plays a critical role in the country’s economy.

“We already work with a number of ship-builders and are looking forward to growing this side of our business as the marine industry continues to expand and the need to reduce energy consumption remains a priority.”

The three day exhibition welcomed 14,239 visitors from 64 countries – an 11% increase on the previous show which took place in 2012.

Show organisers reported a ‘Strong call to adopt green innovation complemented by showcase of green solutions on exhibition floor’ – this is particularly true of Invertek’s products which are capable of reducing energy consumption by more than 50% by exactly matching the speed of the electric motor with the application requirement.

This latest exhibition follows Invertek’s Dutch distributor, Hi-Flex’s attendance at the Europort exhibition in Rotterdam last year, where it showcased Optidrive P2 and HVAC to leading marine industry figures from over 90 countries around the World.

Invertek has produced a dedicated marine brochure which will be available to download from its website later this year.
