Schottel Introduce New Generation Large Thrusters

Press Release
Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Schottel characterize their new generation of Rudderpropellers (SRP) and Twin Propellers (STP) as 'Compact, modular & performance-optimized'.

SRP and STP are available with a variety of reduction ratios to suit all common input speeds regardless of whether they are driven by a diesel engine or an electric motor, and the thruster housing has been optimized using CFD techniques and model tests.

The thruster is even more compact than the existing models and is a practically self-contained system requiring only a minimum of mechanical and electrical interfacing.

The new thruster series offers a high commonality of parts throughout the different reduction ratios – resulting in enhanced spare parts availability.

The new thruster generation is characterized by robustness, compactness, eco-friendliness and ease of maintenance. Thus it is ideal for any kind of offshore operation, tugs and ferries. All thrusters are prepared for integration of the SCHOTTEL Condition Monitoring System S-COM which allows foresighted maintenance planning.
