Veth Compact Jet

What is the Veth Compact Jet?

Experience unparalleled performance with the Veth Compact Jet – a bow thruster engineered to deliver maximum thrust with minimal noise and draft, while also serving as a reliable propulsion system.

What sets the Veth Compact Jet apart is its innovative design, featuring a unique 17° angled propeller placement. This configuration translates to enhanced efficiency and increased thrust, particularly advantageous for sailing vessels seeking optimal performance.

Unlike conventional thrusters, the Veth Compact Jet directs thrust water without passing through the vessel’s structure, resulting in remarkably quiet operation. Moreover, its flexible mounting options enable further noise reduction, ensuring a serene onboard environment.

Discover the pinnacle of bow thruster technology with the Veth Compact Jet – where efficiency, performance, and quiet operation converge to elevate your maritime experience.

Drive options

The Compact Jet can be driven by a diesel engine or electric motor and is available in several variants, such as vertical-drive unit, a clutch system or with a flexible mounting.

  • Diesel driven
  • Electric driven
  • Vertical Electric driven à uitleg over wat het is

Diesel-direct driven Veth thrusters have a built-in clutch, with its controls integrated into the Veth Control System; a compact solution which makes the thruster easier to install.

Advantages of a Veth Compact Jet
  • Higher efficiency, especially at higher vessel speeds
  • Minimum noise / vibrations at maximum thrust (flexible suspension)
  • Minimum draft
  • Optimum manoeuvrability: maximum thrust through 360°
  • Compact and easy to install
  • No channels are required
  • Suitable for Dynamic Positioning
  • Choice of ClassicLine and CrystalLine control systems
Operation

Within the Compact Jet bow thruster unit lies a marvel of engineering – a rotating directional housing that offers unparalleled control over thrust direction. Mounted atop the unit is a gearbox housing the propeller transmission gearing, alongside a steering gearbox meticulously designed for noise-free right-angle transmission.

Even under full power and maximum propeller RPM, the housing effortlessly rotates a full 360°, thanks to a compact gearbox design and minimal exterior pipework. Critical components such as the transmission and drive shaft bearings benefit from oil-bath and injection lubrication, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

Equipped as standard with a 4-blade NiAl bronze propeller, the Compact Jet facilitates seamless inspections, maintenance, and propeller replacements, often without requiring dry dock facilities. With minimal hose connections, removal from its housing is swift, facilitated by a hoist.

The principle behind the Compact Jet is elegantly simple yet highly effective: water is drawn in at an angle from beneath the vessel by the propeller, then smoothly deflected away through the hydrodynamically streamlined housing. Integrated into a rotating structure, the housing allows for forceful thrust in any desired direction, ensuring efficient propulsion with minimal noise and draft.

In addition to its primary role as a bow thruster, the Veth Compact Jet excels as a propulsion system, offering maximum thrust in any position while eliminating vulnerable protruding parts beneath the hull. Already applied successfully in creating self-propelled barges, this versatile solution epitomizes the pinnacle of marine engineering innovation.
