Station keeping/low speed manoeuvring analysis

  • Support in selection and sizing of propulsor configurations in order to fulfil a certain station keeping/low speed manoeuvring criterion.
  • Examples are requests where conventional shaft lines are compared to azimuthing thrusters, how many tunnel thrusters and how much power is required for a certain station keeping/low speed capability in given environmental conditions. This can be analysed by combining wind, current and wave forces with thrust and power data of KONGSBERG propellers, rudders and thrusters. Thrust losses and interaction effects can also be considered.
