Deck Mounted Azimuth Thrusters

The Deck Mounted Azimuth Thruster with a containerized prime mover can be placed on deck of the vessel. An additional in-hull engine room is not needed. The thruster can be supplied with a diesel- or electric drive system. The depth adjustment function supports operation in shallow water as well. The control system ThrusterCommand is integral part of the thruster system. Typical applications can be crane pontoons, work barges, dredgers, split hopper barges or pusher tugs.
