Superior marine propulsion technology

RENK is the gobal technology leader in propulsion solutions for naval and commercial vessels combining and harmonizing all available standard high-speed power sources – diesel, turbine, and any hybrid-electric combinations. Today, our marine gear units power vessels operated by more than 40 of the world’s navies. RENK’s tailored solutions excel based on efficiency and endurance, and especially in specific low-noise / low-vibration layouts.

Maximizing uptime, performance and sustainability of our customers

Our services and solutions are used in power generation plants to drive compressors, pumps, and generators, from hydropower plants to petrochemical plants, in raw materials processing, and in the steel processing industry. High-growth environmental markets such as hydrogen production and CCUS (carbon capture) also rely on high-performance compression equipment. Our robust and durable gearboxes, couplings and bearings are a perfect fit for these applications.

Over the past 20 years, RENK innovations have nearly doubled the efficiency of our gear units, enabling our customers to increase the profitability and energy efficiency of their plants. In this way, we support our customers in reducing their emissions and complying with legal requirements.

Ensuring safety and performance of vital applications

With RTS (RENK Test Systems) we provide test systems for the development, production and quality assurance of systems, products and components. Our customers are in the defense, aerospace, mobility and marine industries to whom we deliver turnkey solution or do in-house testing as a service. 


Heading for the Future

Pushing digitalization, international growth and sustainability.

In all sectors and in every market where we are present and identify growth potential, we commit to innovation and internationalization.

For the fast growing markets as H2 and CCUS we have already a perfect position and product portfolio and will support customers in managing the technology challenges in production and energy transportation.

With regard to our initiatives pushing sustainability at RENK itself, but also to support similar goals of our customers, we are actively driving electrification, hybrid drive and digitalization. Our goal is to increase the efficiency of plants and processes and thus reduce emissions effectively and sustainably.
