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:
- 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.
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.
