Dellner Brakes AB launches in US marine market

(NEW ORLEANS) — Dellner Brakes AB chose the International Workboat Show in New Orleans to launch its portfolio of technologically advanced braking solutions, including the world’s first fully automated, electrical "stop, turn, lock" (eSTL) system, to the U.S. marine market.

While Swedish-based Dellner Brakes is no stranger to the marine market — its products are fitted in ferries, tugs, oil tankers, large military ships, multipurpose vessels, luxury yachts and cruise liners all over the world — its U.S. operation has traditionally focused on the industrial sector, operating through wholly-owned U.s. subsidiary Dellner Industrial Inc.

Dellner is now looking to bring its precision made braking systems and expertise to the U.S. marine market and is investing in the expansion of its U.S. team to support this drive.

This patent-pending electrical STL system is compact and needs no additional piping, making it quick, easy and cost effective to install — especially where space is at a premium. It’s simple to use, hard wearing and easy to maintain, and it’s perfect for applications where a clean environment is paramount or for use in green shipping zones.

The system is available in a range of standard sizes but it can also be customized for different applications. The modular "stopping, turning, locking" system allows customers to choose one, two or all three functions to create a bespoke solution for their needs.

The Dellner eSTL system is fully automated but it can also be operated from an optional remote hand-held control, giving operators the freedom to inspect the complete system during maintenance and testing.
