All Azimuth Thrusters are available with controllable or fixed
pitch propellers, and in either Z- or L-drive configurations; it
can be powered by diesel engine, and its turning system can be
either electric or hydraulic. The blade and hub materials are
bronze. With design tools to develop structures that achieve the
lowest possible resistance and the highest possible functionality.
The thruster lubrication oil circulation is handled by two full
capacity pumps for redundancy and thereby reliable performance. In
the CP hub itself, oil is circulated by a controlled leakage from
the hydraulic system, also with two full capacity pumps, to the
lubrication system. duo to this constant flow, the oil condition
can be monitored for moisture, be cooled and filtered. Furthermore,
the oil condition is displayed continuously on the control panel on
The structure is designed to maximize lifetime, and it is analyzed
both statically and dynamically. In reality, when all tolerances
are considered, it is impossible to perfectly center the propeller
without adjusting the nozzle position.
Modular design most components are used in other models. This means
that you get a proven and reliable design.
Custom-designed blades guarantee the highest possible efficiency
with low levels of noise and vibration to suit each individual
application. The propeller diameter can be from 0.8 to 3.5 metres.
Conservatively designed heavy-duty gears & bearings with extra
heavy-duty material give robust margins that meet all major
Can be driven by a diesel engine from 175 to 3500 kW.
A highly reliable control system with more redundancy than most of
our competitors. In principle, all functions are doubled. It has a
modern graphical user interface that facilitates the operation of
Built to the demands of the major classification standards.
Smart features simplifies installation and give minimized
maintenance and a high level of serviceability.
A high level of redundancy and condition monitoring will ensure
long and reliable operation of the propulsion equipment.
Good serviceability owing to intelligent design.
Environment friendly by means of improved efficiency and
