Azipod CZ thruster is a unique underwater mountable gearless thruster solution that stands out from others due to its built-in high-efficiency electric motor. A fixed pitch propeller is mounted directly to the motor shaft, thus eliminating unnecessary mechanics such as gears, shaftlines and bearings. This makes the thruster unit extremely resilient to mechanical stress and wear. The thruster motor is cooled directly by the surrounding seawater, so no other cooling is needed. Azipod CZ is available up to 4.7 MW power.
