Danfoss Editron Obtains Marine Certification In China

23 June 2020

  • “Green” ship driven
  • Recognizes design, development, technological process, production and manufacturing and product quality
  • After more than 20 tests, the performance of Danfoss Editron product system recognized by the China Classification Society

Danfoss Editron products are now recognized by Chinese marine industry authorities. The company said it has obtained the final Type Approval Certificate for its synchronous reluctance assisted permanent magnet motors and frequency converters from the China Classification Society (CCS).

The certification means Danfoss Editron products are now recognized by Chinese marine industry authorities in terms of design and development, technological process, production and manufacturing and product quality.

“Green ship” has become a popular topic in the shipbuilding and shipping industries, which are facing increasing environmental policy requirements. The impact of ship and shipping industry on environmental pollution has attracted more and more attention, spurring a gradual development demand of electrification solutions within these industries, Danfoss said.

According to the original testing plan, all type approval tests can be completed in first quarter of 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted all plans. Danfoss said the Editron China team actively contacted the authoritative third-party professional testing company in the industry to develop test plan for the type test difficulties, and sorted out the product series and design drawings, process documents and test procedures one by one – and worked out various implementations with the China Classification society surveyor and the Editron product team in Lappeenranta.

The China Classification Society carried out an audit on the design, production, inspection, and other relevant quality systems of the products applied by Danfoss Editron in accordance with relevant specifications and test procedures.

After more than 20 tests, the performance of Danfoss Editron product system was finally recognized by the China Classification Society. This confirmed that Danfoss Editron products meet the approval standards, and the society agreed to issue the product type approval certificate.

“Electrification plays an increasingly important role in the green promotion of ships,” said a senior-level surveyor of the China Classification Society. “The type approval of this product can help customers reduce costs and improve sustainability. This approval also proves the requirements of China Classification Society for standardized product inspection and shows our determination to promote green shipping and classification services.”

“Meanwhile, electric propulsion will become more and more popular in shipping, and electrification is a fast-growing field. At present, port emission regulations are increasingly strict. It is particularly important to find more efficient products, and we hope that these green ship technologies can become the standard of China’s new energy ship industry electrification.” said Chao Wang, head of Danfoss Off-Highway and Marine in China.
