International WorkBoat Show 2014


Innovative drive and control technology to improve productivity in marine applications

As more and more industry segments develop projects in the offshore working environment, they need technology engineered to deliver productive work while withstanding extremes of weather and ocean water corrosion. Bosch Rexroth has adapted numerous hydraulic components for deep sea applications with pressure compensation and corrosion protection to provide equipment with a longer maintenance-free life span and optimal performance.

Bosch Rexroth offers a comprehensive array of components and system solutions for marine support vessels, dredging, supply and salvage boats, oil exploration operations and deep sea applications. Offerings include unique solutions like Hӓgglunds CBM motors, Rineer vane motors, IndraDrive ML large electric drives and A6VM motors.

These and more technologies from Bosch Rexroth will be on display at the International WorkBoat show, December 3-5, 2014 in New Orleans in booth #2202. Browse the tabs below to learn more about some of the Rexroth technology you’ll see at WorkBoat 2014.

  • Rineer Vane Motors

    Rineer Vane Motors—high torque with proven performance

    With a patented ‘vane crossing vane’ design, these motors provide a high torque at both start and stall, and flat torque throughout the entire speed range. They have proven performance in offshore drill rig top head drives and liftboat applications. Additional benefits include:

    • Maximum operating pressure of 3,000 psi
    • Speed up to 2,000 RPM continuous
    • Up to 150 HP (112 kW)
    • High power-to-weight ratio

  • IndraDrive ML

    IndraDrive ML Large Electric Drives—the megawatt-sized universal inverter

    These space-saving, modular electric drives can be used as main power inverters or as motor inverters. They minimize the variants, simplify handling and reduce storage costs while saving energy. More advantages include:

    • High power density
    • Application-optimized concepts to save energy
    • Modular universal inverters

  • Heave Compensation

    Heave Compensation—active and passive

    Varying sea conditions often pose challenges to productive operations for workboats. Bosch Rexroth has years of experience working with marine and offshore partners to develop multiple, robust types of heave compensation. Rexroth is continuously working to create the best solution for Active Heave Compensation (AHC), Passive Heave Compensation (PHC) and Motion Compensated Platform. Benefits of these technologies include:

    • Smooth operation with significant reduction in power usage
    • Accurate positioning to help maintain a steady load
    • Compensation for roll, pitch and heave caused by waves
