The Rolls-Royce Azipull is a low drag, high efficiency pulling thruster that provides both steering and propulsion. It combines the advantage of the pulling propeller with the flexibility of using almost any type of drive to suit specific vessel requirements. Azipull thrusters are designed for continuous service speeds up to 24 knots, while maintaining excellent manoeuvrability. They offer high hydrodynamic and fuel efficiency with low noise and vibration levels. A substantial rudder area delivers excellent course stability. Azipull units also allow the aft end of the hull to be optimised for minimum resistance and simplified construction.
