W2W vessel: installing Voith Inline Thrusters

Last week we installed in our floating dock the Voith Inline Thrusters (VIT’s) on board yardnumber 848. These 1000 kW bowthrusters are specially designed to obtain low noise levels on board. The stator of the electric motor being mounted in a ring around the six bladed rotor being the propeller. The unit is resilienty mounted in a conventional circular bowthruster tunnel. To optimize the flow, flowparts are fitted on each side of the VIT inside the tunnel.
