Gearboxes for Offshoreand Marine Applications

Oil platforms are continuously subjected to the wind and weather. High waves pull on the legs. The positioning of the platforms demands power and precision and therefore also well-functioning and reliable transmission engineering. The demands on ZF transmissions for use on ships are similarly high.

With Reliability:

ZF industrial, swing and winch gearboxes for offshore and marine applications are specially designed for use in the most challenging environments and are suitable for numerous installation situations. For the offshore and marine sector ZF supplies gearboxes which are optimised in a wide variety of versions for their application:

ZF gearboxes for offshore and marine applications fulfil the special requirements which are necessary for use in this environment. For example, special seals are used or coatings are applied which provide improved protection against corrosion. This means that these transmissions can also be used underwater. All ZF gearboxes for offshore and marine applications are certified by certification institutions such as ABS or DNV GL.

Example Applications:

  • Jack-up systems
  • Ship and offshore cranes
  • Offshore cable-winches for deck machines
  • Underwater applications
  • Sludge pumps
  • Cable layer systems
  • Pipe-handling equipment
  • Ship lifts
