ship pod drive / fixed / electric
Mermaid ice-strengthened pods are specifically designed for all vessels that operate in the toughest arctic conditions. Mermaid ICE units are designed to IACS PC4 and provide excellent hydrodynamic performance for open sea voyages for fuel savings in a mixed operating profile. The HICE pods for heavy duty ice applications are designed for ice classes to IACS PC1. Both types are equipped with robust heavy duty induction PWM motors with high torque at low rpm suitable for tough ice milling conditions.
Power range 5 to 18MW
