IMTRA Supplies Hydraulic Thrusters for US Navy

IMTRA, a manufacturer and importer of quality marine products, announced today its Side-Power SH1000 thruster system has been installed on the fourth hull of the 114-foot U.S. Navy Range Training Support Craft (RTSC-110). Selected to replace another supplier used on the previous three builds, IMTRA worked with Florida-based naval architecture firm DeJong & Lebet and San Diego builder Marine Group Boat Works, LLC to determine ideal size requirements for a system optimized for the RTSC-110. The result is a much easier-to-install solution that requires less space and a thruster system that uses 15% less power all while matching the previous system’s actual thrust.

"Challenging projects such as this one from the Navy are where IMTRA really shines,” said Phil Whittaker, product manager, IMTRA. “We do not simply stock product and ship it out the door; our sales and support teams are adept at understanding customers’ needs and developing the best solutions. We are happy we could help the Navy and Marine Group Boat Works by designing an easy to install Side-Power system that matched the thrust of the previous product but required much less power draw.”

“The Navy needed a reliable solution and IMTRA delivered with the Side-Power system,” said Todd Roberts, president, Marine Group Boat Works. “For a sophisticated piece of technology, its design is really quite simple. Installation was easy, we simply dropped in the system, ran the hydraulic and power lines, and the system was up and running.”
