During SMM Hamburg 2018, Veth Propulsion, recently part of Twin Disc, Inc. signed the contract with Sanmar Shipyards for the delivery of Z-drives to the 10th Yenicay vessel in a row. For this occassion the complete thruster was displayed on the Veth booth.
This RAscal1800 tug boat will get 2 Veth Z-drives, type VZ-900 (968 kW / 1800 rpm) and has a VOB50 nozzle of 1.70m
After already 9 Yenicay vessels and 5 Göksu vessels, Sanmar is familiar with the performance and liability of the Veth thrusters. Based on trust regarding the high quality and service level, the Gürun family chose Veth Propulsion as its thruster manufacturer again.
So far Veth Propulsion delivered 30 Z-drives to 15 Sanmar tug boats in countries such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Turkey, Italy and New Zealand. “We are really proud and looking forward to cooperate with Sanmar Shipyards again.” says Erik Veth, CEO of Veth Propulsion.
