Last week Veth Propulsion by Twin Disc, Inc. delivered two Veth L-drives for a newbuilding passenger ship for CMHI shipyard in China. Owner is the Shenzen Xunlong Tourist Boat Co. and the design comes from CoCo Yachts. The Veth model VL-1250i-CR is a counter rotating azimuth thruster with an integrated Permanent Magnet E-motor fitted. For this application the PM motor has a built in brake. E-motor power is 1340 kW. Resilient mounting allows the units to operate as quietly and vibration-free as possible to maximise the level of comfort for passengers on board. The counter rotating propellers ensure high efficiency and low noise levels. This is the first set to be delivered for a 2 shipset order.
