TTS Wins Star Newbuilding Contract for Shell Doors and Platforms

Platform RenderingTTS Marine is set to supply electric drive systems and shell doors for two new Star Cruises ships being built at Meyer Werft, according to a company statement.

“We appreciate this opportunity to develop further our important relationship with Meyer Werft and of course take great pride in providing energy-efficient and eco-friendly solutions for the next generation of cruise ships,” said Mats Olsson, Sales Manager Cruise at TTS.

TTS’ scope of supply for the Star Cruises project includes all-electric shell doors, cargo elevators, loading platforms and tender embarkation platforms with electrically operated aluminum stairs for crew and passengers.

According to Olsson, TTS’ electric systems have a number of advantages over hydraulic ones.

“They are more energy-efficient and contribute to reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions,” he explained. “They are also quieter and require less maintenance as there is no need to maintain hydraulic hoses or cylinder seals. The system is very compact and will save space in the ship compared to a central hydraulic power system, where the hydraulic power unit needs a separate room.”

The electric solution developed by TTS runs on standard marine voltage.
