Primary Product / Service:
The Voith Water Tractor is the perfect vessel application when compact design, high maneuverability and precise steering are essential. One of the world’s most agile maritime vessels, it offers outstanding maneuverability, safety, and reliability. The Voith Schneider Propeller is a unique system generating stepless thrust in all directions with precision and speed. Propulsion and steering are combined in one unit, allowing unmatched maneuvering capability – from full speed ahead to full speed astern in three seconds. The Voith Linear Jet is a new propulsor combining the best properties of conventional propellers with the best properties of conventional waterjets. This combination makes the low maintenance propulsor the ideal solution for ships with mixed operating profiles up to 40 knots. The Linear jet is a fully submerged, custom shaped deceleration/acceleration nozzle with a stator section aft of the rotor.
The Case:
Combining innovation and experience, Voith sets standards in advanced maritime solutions. Focused on technology that makes maneuvering more precise, safer and faster, Voith develops custom-made propulsion systems and collaborates with customers to develop design concepts, such as the Voith Water Tractor or the Voith Bow Steering Module.
