We back up our propulsors with world-class service, available to at all times.

We deliver this through Steerprop 24/7 on-call service. Our service network works in cooperation with our international partners and ensures rapid response times, quick resolution and global availability.

Reliability and ease of maintenance are inherent in the Steerprop azimuth propulsors. Still, proper maintenance and correct operational procedures are important for safe, efficient operation. That’s why Steerprop provides training for your staff, on request.

  • Every propulsor assembled at our factory is tested as an entire unit before leaving our premises
  • Fast and professional service: tailor-made solutions for our customers’ needs
  • 5-year service interval: full overhaul every 15 years or 100,000 hours, based on loading of the units
  • With installed Steerprop Care, the need for full overhaul may be extended based on the condition of transmission line components

Steerprop Care condition monitoring

Steerprop Care, our condition monitoring system, is included as a fully integrated part of every propulsor delivery. It allows crew members to follow machinery trends and detect any deviation that could affect the propulsion system in advance.

This offers shipowners and crew the highest possible reliability, based on enhanced predictability, safety and productivity. By taking a proactive approach, costly breakdowns can be avoided.

Three levels of care

Steerprop Care Standalone

The Steerprop Standalone version with the Steerprop Care App comes as a fully integrated part of every propulsor delivery after August 2019. Specifically designed for propulsion monitoring, the system gives you information about the alarms, trends, time waveforms and spectrums. With Steerprop Care Standalone, the crew is responsible for monitoring the propulsion system.
If help is needed with analysis, the graphs are easy to share with Steerprop engineers from the app.

Steerprop Care Plus

Steerprop Care Plus transfers the monitoring work to our Steerprop engineers, who follow your propulsion system trends and notify the crew of any development that may cause future disturbances. Steerprop Care Plus monitors the complete propulsion system, including vibration along with signals and alarms from the control system, using advanced techniques based on AI and machine learning.

Steerprop Care Premium

Steerprop Care Premium comes with all the features from the Plus version. It includes additional vibration measurement points and monitors the main electrical motor. Additional oil monitoring sensors measure the oil condition to check for particles and water contamination along with the ageing of the oil. This ensures a good lubrication condition throughout the entire lifecycle of the propulsion unit.

Fleet overview

A real-time fleet overview, with an informative view of the propulsion system condition, allows our customers to follow their fleet’s propulsion system condition, regardless of time or place.
The fleet overview works through a browser and requires no additional software installation, making it easy to set up and maintain.

When using Steerprop Care Standalone, Steerprop Care App turns your personal mobile device into an easy-to-use wireless analyzing device.
Steerprop Care App is an additional interface for the crew to monitor the condition of the equipment. Along with views on service displays, the app gives you live in-depth information on the trends, time waveforms, spectrums and alarms of your propulsion unit.
