How to choose this product
The pod drive for ships is an azimuth propulsion system also known as an Azipod®. It uses propellers mounted on pods that can pivot through 360°, giving the vessel great maneuverability. It is usually electrically powered.
These devices are used on large passenger ships requiring great maneuverability in port. However, they are not found on ships of great displacement or those carrying heavy cargoes, such as large tankers and container ships.
The pod drive has two main components. The submerged part, the pod itself, holds the electric motor, propeller shaft and propeller. The steering element connects the pod to the ship. The various possible configurations include Kort nozzle and counter-rotating propellers. Many are traction devices, the propellers facing the bow.
How to choose
Choice will depend on a number of factors, including dimensions, propeller type, shafting and power required for optimal propeller performance.
- Great maneuverability
- Reduced noise and vibration
- Reduced pollution
- Limited power
