Voith Turbo Shuttle Fitted with Robot

Monday, June 06, 2011

Voith Turbo Marine Engineering has developed the Voith Offshore Shuttle for wind parks. Installed in the shuttle’s bow is the new MOTS (Momac Offshore Transport System), whose swivel-arm robot was designed to transfer people and goods from vessel to vessel, or from vessel to offshore wind energy plant. Voith Turbo Marine constructed the shuttle in cooperation with Momac, a machine builder that manufactures special purpose machinery, including robot-assisted transfer systems. The Voith Offshore Shuttle’s robot has been fitted with a transport basket with a maximum capacity of 250 kg, and the system was designed to compensate vertical differential movements of up to 3.2 m. Voith’s shuttle also features a Voith Inline Thruster in the bow and two Voith Schneider Propellers in the stern.
