Marine Propulsion

SSS Clutches automate engine changeovers in propulsion systems for naval ships, cargo vessels, fast ferries and special pleasure yachts. Our clutches are also used in ship electrical generation systems. SSS is the benchmark for operating flexibility and reliability in the tough conditions of the marine environment.

    Marine History

    When friction plate synchronising designs failed within the British Royal Navy Y-100 propulsion machinery, it became obvious very quickly that engaging and disengaging turbines within rough seaway motion was too arduous for a friction plate design, whereas SSS Clutches were perfectly suited.
