New Schottel thruster is capable of 5.5MWEquipment & Technology // July 11, 2017
Schottel has further expanded its portfolio with the successful testing of the 5.5 MW SRP 800 U, a Rudderpropeller that can be installed afloat and is ideal for vessels that cannot be docked easily due to their size or area of operation.
Apart from applications in larger offshore vessels or rigs, the new thruster is suitable for cable-laying vessels, offshore construction vessels and crane ships.
“As a result of customer requests, Schottel decided to further develop our robust, well-proven rudderpropeller technology in the power range up to 5.5 MW”, said Roland Schwandt, Sales Director Tug & Offshore Energy.
Following testing, the SRP 800 U is now available for newbuildings or as a replacement unit in a wide range of applications.
