Our thruster control system K-Thrust is an independent remote control system for electrically driven thrusters, propulsion units and rudders.
Our propulsion and thruster control system offers manual remote control of main propulsion, thrusters and steering gear. When combined with the capabilities of a dynamic positioning system, the thruster control system becomes a manoeuvring system with a complete range of ship-handling functions:

Manual control from levers
Auto piloting
Joystick control with automatic heading option
Automatic station keeping

The system can be configured with multiple control positions on the bridge and in the engine control room. Solutions for local control are available for installation in equipment rooms. Control panels include buttons, control lamps and command - lever or buttons (special applications). Panels have connectors for indication instruments.
