Orion Thrust block

Poseidon has a series of thrust blocks: Heracles and Orion series. These thrust blocks make that the propeller thrust does not have to be absorbed by the gearbox/engine mounts. This creates a quieter and smoother propulsion system.

These units are available from 10 up to 3000 kW applications. They are always used in combination with flexible couplings or plunging joints.


The Orion Thrust block is available in different stan- dard sizes but can also be customized for a perfect fit. The Orion Thrust block is available in a heavy duty ver- sion. In class society approved short build and larger thrust bearings are available on request.

The Thrust block can be combined with a:

  • CV shaft
  • Cardan shaft
  • Flexible Orion coupling
  • Flange
  • Clamping bush
  • Internal taper


The Orion Thrust block has a well-engineered design and is produced with modern, cost effective production methods.

  • The engine can be positioned on softer flexible engine mounts to beter reduce vibrations
  • Simple installation
  • Designed to facilitate a long life span
  • Available in a wide range of sizes and custom solutions
