Danfoss is a global organisation with a diverse portfolio of engineering companies and CMC has pursued this partnership because of its expertise within the power solutions and electronic drive sectors.
The partnership is part of a long-term CMC strategy that has seen it collaborate with Wittenstein Ag in the mechatronics sphere and Mitsubishi Electric Europe for automation development.
In an exclusive conversation with SuperyachtNews.com, CMC’s Giustiniano Caggiano, CMC Marine MD, CFO and shareholder, said teaming with such a formidable partner was something of a coup, but was also a calculated move to apply knowledge and expertise from larger industries to its products.
“Mechatronics is the core of industrial automation”, he explained. “[Over time} we have had the opportunity to share the CMC Marine project with Mitsubishi and Wittenstein, two worldwide leaders in the mechatronics world and we found what we expected which is: reliable and advanced products, R&D support and industrial skill, flexibility and smartness, worldwide networks, marketing [expertise] and an organised service and parts infrastructure.”
The Danfoss agreement will enhance CMC’s ability to deliver on board power management solutions and will support its mission to improve power usage efficiency alongside stabilisation and control. “Performance, comfort and efficiency on board will be dramatically increased.”
