ABS and ECM Selected by MARAD to Demonstrate Innovative Electric Motor Concept for Marine Applications

ABS and E-Circuit Motors (ECM) were selected by the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) to help determine the feasibility of replacing a conventional motor with a printed circuit board (PCB) stator motor.

The project onboard MARAD’s Training Ship Kennedy evaluated the use of multi-layered PCB technology to run an air handler.

MMA subcontracted ECM to design and…
