Discover SSS Clutch

Power Generation

Turbo-machinery for the production of electricity includes some of the most powerful machines ever constructed. SSS provides solutions to meet the modern electricity market's requirements in many different generating plant configurations.


SSS automates engine changeovers in propulsion systems for naval ships, cargo vessels and special pleasure yachts. Our clutches are also used in ship auxiliary systems. SSS is the benchmark for operating flexibility and reliability in the tough conditions of the marine environment.


SSS Clutches enable fans, pumps, compressors and other industrial systems to be dual driven. The drive can be transferred from one prime mover to the other automatically at any speed. Dual driven systems provide Energy Recovery, Redundancy, Maintenance during operation, Startup and Helper (boost) drives. This is achieved whilst increasing the availability of the machine due to the inherent reliability and robustness of the SSS Clutch.

Auxiliary Drive

SSS Clutches are the key mechanism in auxiliary drives such as gas and steam turbine slow speed turning gears, gas turbine starter drives and accelerator drives to run electrical generators to synchronous speed. More than 25,000 SSS Clutches have been supplied to automatically connect/disconnect auxiliary drives…
