Schottel Reports Successful Year

Tuesday, January 11, 2005
The propulsion specialist SCHOTTEL, with headquarters in Spay/Rhine, remains on course for success, rounding off the year 2004 with another sales record. The corporate goal of 100 million euro in group sales for the new building and service sectors was achieved (2003: 90 million euro).

Exports accounted again for about 80 percent. Of particular significance are the latest worldwide sales successes in the areas of tug propulsion systems, offshore supply vessels and tankers, research vessels, ferries and military vessels. More and more SCHOTTEL propulsion and manoeuvring systems are also being successfully implemented in the megayacht sector. Also contributing to the good overall results is our Service department, with a large number of conversions and modernizations of existing systems.

In 2005 the number of tugs with SCHOTTEL onboard will significantly exceed 600. It was in 1967 that the first “workhorse” equipped with Rudderpropellers was put into operation in Hamburg Harbour. In 2004 we successfully landed orders for the propulsion systems of about 75 tugs, i.e. about 150 Rudderpropellers in the power range from 500 to 3850 kW with fixed or controllable-pitch propellers. On top of this come propulsion systems for about another 15 vessels being built for the offshore industry.

Thus SCHOTTEL is supplying two Rudderpropellers of type SRP 3030 CP with a power rating of 2970 kW each at 750 r.p.m. for a 49.5 m offshore support tug (OST) from the “RAmpage Series”, newly developed in Canada by the well-known design office Robert Allan Ltd. US-based Seabulk Offshore is the owner of the 100-tonne tug, which is being built by Labroy Shipbuilding & Engineering PTE Ltd., located in Singapore. The tug will additionally be fitted with a SCHOTTEL Transverse Thruster of type STT 330 LK CP (450 kW).

A bollard pull of 124 tons will be achieved by two 54 m rescue/salvage tugs being built by Astilleros Armon Vigo, S.A. for the Spanish state coastguard service Sociedad de Salvamento y Seguridad Maritima. These vessels are being fitted with two SCHOTTEL Rudderpropellers of type SRP 3040 CP (3840 kW at 600 r.p.m). Each tug is likewise being fitted with an additional SCHOTTEL Transverse Thruster of type STT 330 LK CP (400 kW/1470 r.p.m.).The SCHOTTEL Twin Propeller (STP) – the optimized-efficiency variant of the classic Rudderpropeller – is today one of the most successful SCHOTTEL products for vessels of all types and sizes. This includes everything from modern river cruise ships on European waterways to offshore supply vessels on the open ocean.
