Strong performance

Ships of all sizes need a skillful captain to maneuver them into port, where space is often tight and the weather can be unpredictable. They rely on thrusters on the vessel sides to help them. For strong thruster performance, Danfoss has developed a range of propel systems and intelligent controls. Today, fast and efficient docking is a much easier job.

With a turning capability of 360°, thrusters can push a ship in any direction. Maneuverability is particularly powerful when multiple thrusters are installed.

Using our advanced electrohydraulic components and controls, it’s possible to enhance thruster performance with variable propel speed and even variable blade control. The proportional PVG valves and H1 hydrostatics deliver thruster power in an integrated system that can be linked by CAN bus with other control systems on board. That’s a big advantage – particularly when hydraulic components are located in different parts of the ship.
