Be it out at sea or in port, on rivers or lakes - Voith technology makes maneuvering on water more precise, safer and faster.
The VOITH Marine portfolio of products has a wide application range, including:
Propulsion and precision steering in one unit
The unique Voith Schneider Propeller system generates stepless thrust in all directions with precision and speed. Propulsion and steering are combined in one unit, thus allowing precise maneuvering..
Precise maneuverability and high reliability
The Voith inline thruster is a rim driven propeller powered by a permanent-magnetic electric motor. The system generally requires neither axle nor shaft or gearing. It results in a more efficient transmission of electric drive power due to absence of gears and shafts, a higher thrust efficiency compared to conventional thrusters, few movable wear parts, and no dynamic seals. The motor is protected against water ingress and is supported by a sea-water lubricated slide bearing patented by Voith.
Increased efficiency and reduced noise and vibration
The Voith Linear Jet (VLJ) is a fully submerged custom shaped de-celeration/acceleration nozzle with a stator section aft of the rotor. The stator section cancels rotor-induced swirl, and through that, optimizes the acceleration of the jet stream and the rudder inflow. The submerged position eliminates the requirement for a long inlet tunnel resulting in linear in- and outflow and low marine growth sensitivity.
A complete control systm from a single source
Voith offers a full system solution with a wide range of suitable control system options. Control signals can be transmitted mechanically or electronically. Each system is customized to the specific propulsion plant as well as to the operating conditions, guaranteeing comfortable control and efficient vessel operation.
