Veth Propulsion by Twin Disc, Inc. has delivered a tunnel bow thruster, type VT-150 for a Turkish mega yacht (type Bilgin 263) of 80 meters in length at Bilgin Yachts in Instanbul.
The bow thruster is powered by a 200kW (@1800rpm) squirrel cage induction motor and controlled by a frequency converter which we have delivered and this is built in the bow of this nice Yacht!
We also delivered a main control panel for control & monitoring from the bridge and two separate wing control panels which can be used at bridge wing locations.
Veth thrusters suit a variety of application needs, including yachts, passenger ships, ferryboats, cargo ships, tugboats, and can be adjusted to meet customer requirements and desired maneuverability. Additionally, the reliability and quality of the Veth thrusters meet high standards. Every week we deliver thrusters from headquarters in Papendrecht, the Netherlands, to be shipped worldwide.
