WESMAR announced that two more of their all stainless steel bow thrusters have been given ABS Certificate of Design Assessment for dynamic positioning (DP) applications.

WESMAR Models V2-24 and V2-26 Vortex dual prop all stainless steel bow thrusters have joined the V2-20NS system, which received the design approval rating earlier this year.

The horsepower ratings for the V2-24 and V2-26 range from 175 to 225, for operation on vessels up to 225 hp.

The coveted ABS rating clears WESMAR thrusters for use on ABS DP classed vessels and widens the scope of business with newly constructed offshore supply and crew boats, many of them part of the rebuilt offshore oil industry in the post-Katrina U.S. Gulf Coast and to the fleet of new-generation deep water vessels.

WESMAR’s all stainless steel design features polished NiBrAl props along with stainless steel seal and bearing carriers with WESMAR’s stainless steel casting. The design meets WESMAR’s focus on low maintenance, more thrust per input horsepower, easier retrofits and upgrades, more precise control, and rugged and reliable operation.
