Dependability is especially critical in harsh arctic environments. That’s why we build redundancy into every ARC azimuth propulsor. And with their robust mechanical transmission, reliability is built in. They also excel in ice-management operations. Ice milling is also frequently used. Controlling vectored thrust – slipstream – over 360° enables ships to open and widen channels, to blow ice ridges and free arctic offshore installations from ice pressure.
Speed and efficiency
Steerprop CRP ECO offers several benefits:
Steerprop CRP ECO combines the advanced hydrodynamic qualities that make our CRP propulsors uniquely efficient, with the same fail-safe levels of redundancy that make all our ARC propulsors durable and reliable. The end result is a supremely efficient, reliable high-power propulsor for applications requiring high power and high reliability.
The eco-efficient CRP ECO product line has been expanded with the new, compact and cost-effective CRP ECO LM propulsor with an integrated vertical permanent magnet (PM) motor.
Steerprop CRP ECO LM, with reduced lifetime costs, improved fuel-efficiency and low vibration and underwater noise levels, offers benefits to shipowners, builders and designers, and to the environment as well. The compact construction facilitates installation and maintenance, and maximizes onboard comfort.
