Shallow Draught Thrusters

Shallow Draught Thrusters

High maneuverability for shallow draft environments

Shallow draft thrusters are rated for power inputs from 100-825kW. On ships navigating in shallow waters e.g. ferries these thrusters function as main propulsion units. They can also be designed to provide back-up thrust or auxiliary propulsion on e.g. research vessels. In many applications ZF supplies shallow draft thrusters as the better alternative to tunnel thrusters.Those can be configured in combination with retractable thrusters, tunnel thrusters and well or deck-mounted propulsion units.

Advantages

  • 360 degree steering, no thrust reduction at any angle
  • Compact design, water intake and nozzle within one circle
  • Highly thrust/power ratio
  • Design allows for low water intake speed, thus avoiding the induction of foreign material and/or debris
  • Ease of installation and maintenance

Tunnel Thrusters

Tunnel Thrusters

Improved Maneuvering

These auxiliary propulsion units with optimized hydrodynamic efficiency lead to significantly increased maneuverability for traditional shaftline equipped commercial and large pleasure craft vessels Special versions of this thruster system are available, for example a solution where the thruster is mounted in a rubber sealing. This reduces structure borne noise significantly and makes it possible to remove the thruster from the vessel for maintenance work without dry docking.

Advantages

  • Increased maneuverability
  • Reduced noise
  • Optimized efficiency
  • Highest reliability
  • Ease of installation and maintenance
