Hydraulic Tunnel Thruster With FPP/CPP

Category: Marine Thruster

Hydraulic drive motor can be used as the alternative to an electric motor, and hydraulic power pack with electric driven pump and starter to be required as power source.

A hydraulic thruster system offers an economic advantage as the possibility to run several systems on board from a centralized hydraulic power source. This will save cost compared to running all items with individual power packs. Equipment that is often powered by a centralized hydraulic system includes windlasses, stabilizers, winches, cranes, furling systems and lifting mechanisms. There are many different ways of designing hydraulic systems. Side-Power hydraulic systems are designed to provide outstanding performance and flexibility to efficiently support any on-board hydraulic equipment that it makes sense to power from a centralized hydraulic system.
