azimuth thruster / for ships / hydraulic / Z-drive
Max.: 2,000 kW (2,719.2 hp)
Min.: 200 kW (271.9 hp)
Providing high maneuverability and station-keeping capability for workboats
Retractable azimuth thrusters are rated for power inputs from 200kW-2000kW, in Z-drive or L-drive configurations.Operating in full azimuth mode the thrusters are deployed as part of auxiliary propulsion systems to increase the vessel’s station-keeping capabilities. Equipped with fixed pitch propellers, the units can be matched to medium-speed diesel, hydraulic or electric engines.Tailor made thruster designs allow for a perfect fit to the vessel’s hull, while propeller layouts ensure efficiency.
Excellent station keeping performance
Highly customized and fully integrated propulsion solutions
Ease of installation and maintenance
