Drive

The starting point for the choice of the appropriate rudder propeller is the sailing profile of your ship. Based on that, you can opt for various drives:

  • Diesel-direct
  • Diesel-electric
  • Hydraulic
  • A combination of the above

Diesel-direct driven Veth thrusters have a built-in clutch, with its controls integrated into the Veth Control System. A compact solution which makes the thruster easier to install.

Horizontal vs. vertical
In the case of electric and hydraulic units, you can also choose for a vertical drive: the Veth L-drive. Here, the motor is mounted vertically and the upper gearbox with optional clutch is eliminated. The integrated steering transmission, however, is the same as on a Z-drive. An advantage of an L-drive is that, in the absence of a gear transmission, the resulting efficiency is higher than the one of a Z-drive.

Hybrid drive
Also for sustainable solutions, Veth Propulsion is the right address. Concerning the environment we are committed to making our contribution. One example is the Veth Hybrid Drive.

Diesel-direct

With diesel direct drive the flywheel of the diesel engine is connected to the drive flange of the Z-drive by means of a cardan or carbon linked shaft.  

Veth Integrated L-drive

The Veth Integrated L-drive is a revolutionary concept because it is the most compact electric propulsion system in the world 

Diesel Electric

A ship with diesel electric propulsion has multiple generator sets on-board, which together provide the full electric propulsion power supply. 

Hydraulic

With a hydraulically driven rudder propeller the hydraulic motor can be placed on the side or at the top of the gear drive.  

Hybrid

The Veth Hybrid Drive has two different drives: Diesel-direct en Diesel/LNG electric.
