well mounted rudder propellers

This is a Hydraulic Rudder Propeller, which is for well mounting.
The hydraulic motor is inside the lower bulb housing, and is directly connected to the propeller shaft.
These are made of steel, and are fairly simple build, no driving gears sets and only a few bearings inside, for easy repair and very little maintenance.
All pipes etc. are inside the thruster and are not in contact with the water.
The bulb is the heart of the thruster and is simple to dismantle from the thruster.
Steering is 180 degrees, done by a hydraulic cylinder inside the top of the frame.
Because the propeller is hydraulic powered, we also have forward and reverse, so also covering the 360 degrees steering.

advantages

 The advantage of Hydraulics

  • Significant cost savings. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain and cheaper to repair.
  • Less damage. Because of No bevel gears, no drive shafts, special seal system. Equipped with shear pins, or even free tilting, very solid construction, even suitable for Arctic conditions.
  • Shorter delivery times. Thanks to an advanced production process.
  • Simple, quick and easy to assemble. Plug-and-play system, assembly without alignment. Can be installed at any height, even almost continuously submerged in salt or sweet water.
  • Choose for yourself where to install the engine.
  • Greater flexibility on-board. Besides the propeller, with a hydraulic power pack you can also power other systems, such as a crane, a winch,  or even a generator. As a result, you need less diesel engines to do the same thing.
  • Optimal manoeuvrability. From full steam ahead to full astern in 2 seconds. Quick steering, ideal for dynamic positioning.
  • Very compact, good performance, low noise level, can also run on bio-oil.
