In December, Kumera visited the workboat show & annual conference in New Orleans. The conference was of great interest for Kumera, says Mr. Anders Enge, Tender manager at Kumera Norgear. The majority of the discussions were around Kumera’s advanced gear concepts for hybrid solutions, which have gained great interest from US based shipowners and designers as well as yards and other partners. The Kumera Hybrid solution is based on well proven, highly efficient gearbox technology, which has the possibility to include auxiliary functions into the compact propulsion gearbox. In respect to combined gearboxes (multi PTI/PTO propulsion gearbox), Kumera Norgear stands out from the crowd, offering advanced standard and tailor-made gearboxes. Kumera Norgear has been delivering multi-functional gearboxes for almost 50 years. Our latest flagship, being the revolutionary 2 step hybrid gearbox for the tugboat owner Buksér and Berging.
