Description

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.
