The Jastram azimuth grid thruster is capable of providing highly accurate dynamic positioning, responsive steering and emergency propulsion.
Mounted flush to the bottom of the vessel, it has no protruding parts which could be damaged in shallow water. A removable grid protects the horizontally mounted propeller. Smaller parts and sand are washed through the large-volume housing.
A special propeller generates effective thrust with a high volume at a low pressure.
With the solid Jastram thruster gear, the water is pumped through the 360° rotating steering grid.
Turning the grid by up to 180° in 8 seconds, the thruster provides immediate thrust in all directions.
The prime mover can be moved by 180° around the propeller according to the given installation conditions in the hull structure.
