AZIMUTH PROPULSION FOR ICE GOING AND ARCTIC VESSELS - 6 Pages
Steerprop Ltd. is centre of azimuth propulsion technology.
Situated in Rauma, Finland it provides Steerprop Azimuth
Propulsors for the global maritime market.
Steerprop stands for a new generation of azimuth propulsors.

are some of the means to design for lifelong economy. The ease
of preventive maintenance and test sampling, diagnostics, condition monitoring and the latest bus and PLC technology used in
the control system are all factors of improved dependability.
Recent progress in gear manufacturing technology has made it possible
to extend the power range of mechanical propulsors to 16 – 20 MW
even in the highest ice classes; LL9, Polar 20 or PC1.
Ship designer benets of low power consumption of electric steering and
compact size of auxiliaries. Geared transmission and location in the enocation
gine room enables the optimization of the driving electric motor for varying
operating conditions and overload demands in ice going vessels.
Traditional, proven solution. The ability to produce full thrust at any direction gives good maneuverability and excellent ice going capability ahead
or astern. The strut in front of the pushing propeller provides protection
against ice impacts.
For applications where high bollard pull is of essence. The concentrated
propeller wash of the ducted propeller is a powerful tool for ice manageool
ment. Nozzle provides protection for the propeller.
Combines the benets of a pulling propeller in ice and unsurpassed efciency of Contra-Rotating Propeller.
