Electric Motor Driven Azimuth Thruster

Category: Marine Thruster

All Azimuth Thrusters are available with controllable or fixed pitch propellers, and in either Z- or L-drive configurations, it can be powered by electric motor, 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 bridge.

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 meters.

Conservatively designed heavy-duty gears & bearings with extra heavy-duty material give robust margins that meet all major classification standards.

Can be driven by a diesel engine from 500 to 2500 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 the ship.

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 non-polluting sealing.
