Charged EVs | Infineon and Korea Shipbuilding develop ship electrification technology

Semiconductor firm Infineon Technologies and HD Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) have signed a non-binding agreement to jointly develop applications for the electrification of marine engines and machinery using energy-efficient power semiconductor technology.

Infineon and HD KSOE will develop power solutions for propulsion drive technology, a key ship electrification component. Infineon will provide HD KSOE with technical assistance in semiconductor power modules and system solutions and share maritime semiconductor trends. HD KSOE aims to improve marine vessel propulsion drive technology dependability and performance, contributing to environmental sustainability through ship electrification.

“We are excited to work closely together with HD KSOE to contribute to a more sustainable marine engine ecosystem and drive the decarbonization of shipping,” said Peter Wawer, Division President at Infineon Technologies.
