Ten Years: Van der Velden’s Oceangoing Div

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

It is now a full decade since Van der Velden Barkemeyer (formerly Barkemeyer Schiffstechnik GmbH) joined Van der Velden Marine Systems and formed the group’s dedicated Oceangoing vessels division.

One of Van der Velden’s key products is the original Barke rudder, a high-lift design for minimal wear on the linkage and reduction of noise and vibration. More than 1,300 oceangoing vessels, varying from dredgers to multi-purpose vessels, have already installed the Barke rudder.

Van der Velden Marine Systems also offers the Commander rotary vane steering gear. The rotary vane steering gear includes a compact actuator inside a closed housing, with equal torque at all rudder angles. Inside the actuator is a fully integrated rudder carrier for rudder stock diameters of approx. 660 mm (depending on rudder angle).
