Steerprop Control System

The Steerprop Control System is the best option for shipowners wanting superior operational reliability and high quality. As part of Steerprop’s rigorous quality assurance, the entire control system, including controllers, cabinets and control panels, is tested together with the propulsor in-house. The Steerprop control levers are equipped with full redundancy, enabling a complete follow-up backup control.

SP Control System

This next-generation control system is built with modern and proven PLC control technology. The comprehensive backup system, included by default in all units, has robust features for maximum redundancy and is always monitored off-line to maximize availability. The system also allows for remote service support via the Steerprop remote service module.

Steerprop’s advanced control system is available for newbuilds or as retrofit, regardless of the propulsor make or existing systems. The system gives the customer a first-class manoeuvring experience that can be further enhanced with personalised control profiles according to personal preferences. The Steerprop Control System is a perfect fit for those who want, and need, to be in control.
