Veth Tunnel Thruster

What is the Veth Tunnel Thruster?

The Veth Tunnel thruster stands as a testament to traditional bow and stern thruster excellence, offering maximum thrust capability to both Port and Starboard sides. Available in a variety of configurations to suit diverse marine needs, this thruster ensures unparalleled maneuverability and control in any situation.

Choose from multiple options to tailor the Veth Tunnel thruster to your vessel’s specifications:

  • Aluminum Tunnel: Ideal for aluminum vessels, this version features a steel gear unit housed within an aluminum tunnel, preventing premature corrosion and ensuring long-lasting performance.
  • Flexible Mounted Tunnel: Engineered for reduced noise and vibration levels, the flexible mounted tunnel thruster enhances crew and passenger comfort. Suspended within an outer tunnel, this design dampens vibrations and allows access without dry docking.
  • Veth Elbow Thruster: Compact yet powerful, this smaller tunnel thruster offers cost-effective operation and low maintenance without the need for a gearbox.
  • Retractable Tunnel Thruster: Versatile and multifunctional, the retractable tunnel thruster serves as both a conventional tunnel thruster during mooring and a 360° steerable thruster for dynamic positioning systems or emergency propulsion.
  • Active Noise Suppression System: Optionally equipped with an Active Noise Suppression system utilizing air injection, the thruster minimizes noise caused by cavitation, ensuring a quieter onboard experience.
  • Horizontal Installation: Horizontal versions of the VT-50 and VT-90 Tunnel Thrusters are available, allowing for installation in vessels with limited vertical space.

Experience unparalleled maneuverability and control with the Veth Tunnel thruster – where innovation meets tradition to redefine marine propulsion excellence.

Operation

Discover enhanced performance and reduced noise levels with the Veth Tunnel Thruster, featuring a streamlined right-angle gearbox and propeller mounted within the tunnel. Powered by a vertically mounted electric or hydraulic motor, this thruster provides dual-directional drive for seamless maneuvering both port and starboard.

Trusted by vessels worldwide, the Veth range of tunnel thrusters ensures optimal performance across diverse marine applications.

For those seeking to further minimize noise, our Active Noise Suppression (ANS) system offers an innovative solution. By injecting compressed air into the tunnel ahead of the propeller’s flow direction, cavitation effects are minimized, resulting in a quieter onboard experience.

Experience noise reduction of up to 10 dB with Active Noise Suppression, effectively reducing cavitation damage and enhancing comfort for crew and passengers alike. Available for new installations or retrofitting existing units, this cost-effective solution is compatible with virtually all sizes of Veth tunnel thrusters.

Optimize operation and reduce noise levels with Veth Tunnel Thruster technology – where innovation meets reliability to elevate your maritime experience.
