Veth Azimuth Thrusters

Veth Azimuth Thrusters are well-suited for a wide range of vessels, thanks to our flexibility and customization. Your preferences serve as the foundation, with several options, configurations, and drive lines to choose from. Our azimuth thrusters are available in either Z-drive or L-drive configurations and can be powered by any energy source. The control system for the azimuth system can be either electric or hydraulic. Additionally, the thruster units come with options for open propellers, counter-rotating propellers or nozzles.

Drive Options
Integrated L-drive VL550i

L-Drive

Azimuth thrusters where the electric motor is mounted vertically, removing the second bevel gear from the drivetrain. Resulting in improved efficiency and noise reducation.

Z-drive

The rotary motion makes two right angle turns, resembling a "Z", used to connect the mechanically supplied driving energy to the Z-drive azimuth thruster device.

Precision Propulsion Systems

Shallow Draft Thrusters

Propulsion system housed within the ship’s hull, enhancing efficiency and reducing power consumption. Integrated thrusters and specially designed caps optimize thrust even in shallow waters.

View Product
Retractable Thrusters

Thrusters using hydraulic systems for lifting and lowering, allowing them to retract into the hull when inactive. Ensuring flexibility and convenience, ideal for limited space or temporary propulsion needs.

View Product
Deck Mounted Thrusters

Deck-mounted thrusters, ideal for vessels with limited internal hull space, offer combined propulsion and steering directly on the deck. Commonly used in barges, ferries, and Jack-up vessels

The Veth Propulsion Approach

Veth Propulsion embraces the power of simplicity, combined with robustness and sustainability. To achieve this, we minimize moving parts outside the gearbox, and all Veth thrusters feature compact construction with minimal piping. Our commitment to using durable, high-quality materials ensures a robust and reliable construction, resulting in long-lasting performance with minimal maintenance requirements. By designing and building all rudder propellers in three separate main components, which are then assembled using class-approved connections, our Veth thrusters are not only robust and reliable but also easily serviceable.
