Front-end gearboxes are, as opposed to propulsion gearboxes, position in front of the main engine, connected to the engines Power-Take-Off (PTO).
The typical application for Kumera’s front-end gearboxes is driving auxiliary vessel systems like firefighting pumps (FiFi), hydraulic pumps, generators, compressors, etc.
Kumera has a large range of standardized front-end gearboxes, with multiple Power-Take-Off (PTO) and Power-Take-In (PTI) capability, allowing the gearboxes to drive 1-8different auxiliary systems.
Using a Kumera front-end gearbox will allow running several auxiliary systems in a very reliable, cost-effective way, with a compact installation of the equipment.
