    The Company:
    ZF Marine supplies propulsion system components for yachts, defense craft, high-speed ferries, workboats and commercial vessels, in a power range from 10 to 14,000 kW. The product portfolio includes a comprehensive range of transmissions (reversing, non-reversing and hybrid), propellers POD-drive systems, steering systems and CANbus-compatible, electronic control systems, azimuth thrusters, tunnel thrusters, bow thrusters and sail drives.

    The Case:
    ZF Marine is a global leader in marine propulsion technology and a leader in the integration of azimuth thruster or “Z Drive” technology with the brown water fleets. Early adopters have found performance gains, significantly increased maneuverability, and reduced fuel consumption with this technology. In order to continue to be successful with innovative products, ZF annually invests about 5% of its sales in research and development.
