NORIS partners with SDT Kiel

Schiffsdieseltechnik Kiel GmbH (SDT) will count on the know-how of NORIS and therefore strengthen the focus on increasingly individual requirements in the automation technology around aggregates in its project business.

As an expert for customer-specific solutions, NORIS will support SDT in the design and production of certain types of "Local Operation Panels" (LOPs) for stationary control and monitoring. The automation solution "myNORIS", which offers maximum flexibility for these applications will be used as the basis.

SDT develops unique solutions for propulsion and energy management for its customers in the maritime sector. One key component is the control and safety equipment of gensets, which are always designed project-specifically. According to Fin-Olav Wittstock, Managing Director of SDT, the requirements here are becoming more and more complex, which is why SDT Kiel has decided to rely on the expertise of NORIS.

"With this step, we want to achieve that projects can be carried out more efficiently in-house by SDT Kiel. In particular, this should ensure that the "Factory Acceptance Test" (FAT), as well as the installation and commissioning of aggregates at SDT's customers run even more smoothly," explains Wittstock.

Here, the flexibility of the NORIS solutions highlights its key strength. The systems are designed in such a way that changes can still be made during the project phases (e.g. during commissioning).


Schiffsdieseltechnik Kiel GmbH (SDT) from Rendsburg develops individual concepts for efficient and environmentally friendly propulsion and energy management on ships, offshore facilities and in the stationary sector. As a leader in the field of propulsion technology and power generation, SDT can draw on a wealth of experience from over 5,000 units, engines and gearboxes supplied worldwide.
