And when the "A" sails, it will of course be far below that, with the same comfort on board as if it runs with an engine.
And as far as E-MS is concerned: We will continue to operate from our site here in the Harburg inland port. Hamburg is an important shipbuilding and shipping location. Short distances and on-site presence are still important, even in times of video conferencing. In addition, we have taken on all employees. For us, expertise and experience depend on people, not just on patents and CAD drawings!
And what does the joint future mean for the customers of RENK and E-MS?
Christoph Fenske: In a nutshell: RENK has the drive technology, E-MS the switchgear - that is the perfect combination! The RENK Group also offers great financial backing, which is an important competitive factor, especially for long-term, complex projects. And not only for E-MS, yet especially for our customers. Furthermore, since propulsion is often discussed very early in a project, there are opportunities for E-MS to be involved in shipbuilding projects at a very early stage.
RENK's worldwide sales network also gives E-MS access to international customers. Incidentally, we are currently pursuing several joint projects in the mega-yacht, research ship and marine sectors. We are also supporting our Chinese partners in engineering for commercial ships.
Thank you very much for the interview!
