Bow thruster / tunnel type / for ships
bow, tunnel type
Indispensable for manoevering and dynamic positioning
Transverse thrusters are installed in the bow or stern in order to improve manoeuvrability. Depending on the type of vessel, the range of application for transverse thrusters extends from brief docking and casting-off in ports with a limited number of operating hours every year up to continuous operation under extreme load conditions in demanding offshore applications with dynamic positioning.
