HHI Tests First Thruster

Monday, February 26, 2007
HHI’s Engine & Machinery Division successfully completed a function test for a side thruster with a capacity of 2,000kW on February 12. The side thruster will be installed in a 145,000 LNG carrier for Korea Line Corporation currently being constructed at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

Performance in the test was significant since it was the first side thruster built by HHI. The test was performed under the attendance of the ship owner and classification association. The Engine & Machinery Division accomplished the development of a side thruster using its own technology in 2005. After production of a prototype, it successfully passed various test such as propeller pitch capability and rotation. Currently, HHI has a backlog for about 30 side thrusters.
