Wesmar Wins ABS DP1 Approval

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Wesmar announced that their Model V2-20NS Vortex dual prop all stainless steel bow thruster has been given ABS approval for dynamic positioning applications (DP1).

The horsepower rating for the V2-20NS is 75 to 150, and the company anticipates similar approval soon for their V2-26 and V2-36 systems, which operate on vessels up to 350 HP. Wesmar’s polished stainless steel props are standard, and stainless steel seal with bearing carriers sync with the stainless steel casting. The counter rotating dual prop design, a Wesmar invention, provides up to 40% more thrust with the same tunnel size and with the same input power.
