C POWER for marine application

The HITZINGER C-Power monoshaft converters for marine applications provide a ‘clean source of power’ to ships in port and operate independently from the local network at both 50Hz and 60Hz supply. Our high quality supply meets all the various requirements and regulations to ensure sensitive on-board consumers are reliably supplied by the Hitzinger monoshaft converters.

C-Power MONOSHAFT Converter

The compact monoshaft converters design provides optimum quality, together with extremely high reliability. The converter uses just two roller bearings, which makes the system very simple making service and maintenance easy to achieve.
