To complete the offer in propulsion systems Poseidon can supply a selection of Thrusters.

The following different models are available:


The name Azimuth comes from the horizontal celestial coordinate system. The azimuth coordinate is the horizontal angle around the horizon.

An azimuth thruster is a steerable thruster that also turns in a 360 degrees angle around a horizontal bearing construction.

Poseidon brand Azimuth thrusters are often used for main propulsion. They are available from 60kW to 2900kW. Every individual thruster system can be optimized for vessel speed or for maximum bollard thrust. Azimuth thrusters are available in Z-drive configuration with direct diesel engine drive or in L-drive configuration for the electric motor or hydraulic motor drive. The control system comes with an interface for the autopilot system. An interface for dynamic positioning systems is optional.

Azimuth thrusters can replace conventional propulsion and rudder steering systems to perform both propulsion and steering functions. When advanced maneuverability is required in applications such as dynamic positioning, ship escort and ship docking services an Azimuth thruster is recommended.


For save and easy mooring, support during fishing and operation under dynamic positioning, tunnel thrusters are a good technical and economical solution.

The Poseidon tunnel thrusters can be installed as bow thruster or stern thruster in the transverse direction of the hull. We can supply electric motor driven, hydraulic motor driven and diesel engine driven tunnel thrusters from 20kW to 2900kW. The tunnel structures can be manufactured in steel, aluminium or FRP depending on vessel hull material.

A full plug & play electric driven package consists out of a tunnel thruster with electromotor, frequency drive with programmed factory settings and a main control panel with proportional joystick for stepless control. Interface for full integration with dynamic positioning systems is optional.
