Integrating propulsion and control functions, an azimuth thruster can rotate 360 degrees around the vertical steering column, this allows a ship to gain maximum thrust in any direction. The prime mover can be a diesel engine, an electric motor or a hydraulic motor. Both of adjustable pitch and fixed pitch types are available.
Power Range: 10 KW to 7,000 KW
Propeller Type: single-propeller and twin-propeller
Installation Type: deck/well/transom mounted
Propeller can steer in any direction of 360° above the water level.
Propeller can be driven by electric motor, diesel engine and hydraulic motor.
The diameter of propeller is up to 3.3 meters.
