The BOW310HMD hydraulic thruster may be fitted to Ø 300 mm GRP, steel or aluminium tunnels or used as stern thruster. Offers virtually unlimited running time.
This model hydraulic bow thruster in the VETUS range, featuring as standard a hydraulic motor. The hydraulic motor is driven by a hydraulic pump.
If a hydraulic pump and associated tank are already installed on board, then, in most cases, this assembly can be used for driving the bow thruster too. Some marine engine manufacturers, e.g. VETUS DEUTZ, supply as standard a special PTO (Power Take Off) connection, which greatly simplifies the installation of the hydraulic pump. In addition to the pump and the hydraulic storage tank, VETUS can also supply the required load sensing and control devices, as well as the high-pressure hydraulic hoses, complete with end fittings. The hydraulic bow thruster may be fitted to GRP, steel or aluminium tunnels or used as a stern thruster using the appropriate installation kit.
