For save and easy mooring, support during fishing and operation under dynamic positioning, tunnel thrusters are a good technical and economical solution.
The Poseidon and Thrustleader 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 executed in steel, aluminium and FRP depending on vessel hull material.
A full plug & play electric driven package consists of a tunnel thruster with electro motor, 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.
