Z-drives Deck sets VZ-180 for Boskalis

Veth Propulsion recently delivered three Z-drives Deck Installations to Damen Hardinxveld. The thrusters will be deck mounted for a special dredging project in the Dead Sea. Two thrusters will be mounted on special design of a Damen workboat, one thruster will be mounted on the suction dredger. Both can be connected together, in which case all three thrusters are able to be controlled from one bridge.
