‘Thruster’ is a broad term for any device fitted to your ship that provides hydrodynamic thrust. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and formats, but they generally consist of a propeller (or impeller) inside a duct or casing that directs water flow. They can serve two purposes: propulsion or manoeuvring of the ship.
Bow and stern thrusters are generally for manoeuvring the ship, while azimuth thrusters are usually used for propulsion and offer manoeuvrability as an added benefit. Controlled-pitch propellers (CPP) and fixed-pitch propellers (FPP) are also included in our propulsion services.
