SMD’s Curvetech® range of thrusters offer industry-leading high performance with near equal forward and reverse thrust. The range encompasses thrusters from 230mm diameter to 750mm diameter with various motor options, which provides the designer with a high level of choice to ensure vehicle performance is maximised. Where possible, the units utilise aluminium and plastics making them one of the lightest units on the market currently. All thrusters within the range are used by SMD on our own vehicles and we are very proud of our ROVs' handling capabilities. They generate both high bollard pulls for working applications and high vehicle speeds for efficient survey work rates. In addition, our vehicles are industry renowned for their ability to hold station in high current environments, due to their impressive thrust levels.
