Electric azimuth thrusters
In combination with a power management system, electric drives increase the efficiency of the propulsion system and reduce fuel consumption. Electric energy generation systems on board are capable of producing only the power currently required and distributing it to the various consumers.
The desired thrust is set via the speed of the electric motor (frequency control). The connected generators always run at the optimum operating point. Combined with a SCHOTTEL Combi Drive offering a high hydrodynamic and mechanical efficiency, such a system is therefore particularly economical
