UUC

Our range of underwater mountable thrusters are designed for easy underwater mounting and dismantling without dry-docking the application. Our underwater mountable thrusters provide reliable transit and DP operation.

A robust, heavy-duty L-drive azimuth thruster specifically designed for extended and reliable DP operation on offshore rigs and drillships. The thrusters are delivered with powers from 2,500 to 6,500 kW. Compact construction provides advantages for mounting at the shipyard and during maintenance. The range is capable of underwater mounting and demounting without the need of dry-docking, using a special lifting technique, unique sealing and locking device.
