Meanwhile, about 10 different types of ships are already sailing thousands of miles with our A-pod propulsions.
The A-pod series resulting in a lower fuel consumption (up to 30%) and exhaust emissions currently on the market. In addition, our electrical Azimuth thrusters have a minimum of rotating parts and a lubrication system with low crankcase oil, which directly leads to low maintenance costs. The A-pod's can rotate over 360, or 2x110 degrees and eliminate the need for a conventional shaft, rudder and nozzle.
That is why we offer, in combination with a SLA a 5-year warranty.
A-POD PG (Internal Planetary Gearbox)
Our pattented and compact A-pod PG is the ﬁrst ellectrically driven propulsion system with an integrated electric motor, hollow drive shaft and planetary gearbox. The extended propeller shaft runs through the whole POD housing. Due to the reduction ratio of the planetary gearbox,the propeller always runs at its most economical speed, resulting in optimal performance in terms of eﬃciency and thrust.
Available in a power range of 300kW-2500kW.
Ready to ship
A-POD DD (Direct Drive version)
The A-pod DD, has an integrated PM electric motor directly coupled to the propeller shaft. This eliminates the need for spiral bevel gears, shafts and bearings. The extended propeller shaft is perfect for absorbing any impact load on the propeller. It has the same advantages as the A-Pod PG such as: forced oil lubrication and double sealing arrangement. All this now even more compact, quieter and cheaper.
Available in a power range of 90kW-600kW.

A-POD CRP (Counter Rotating Propellers)
The maritime industry is continues looking for innovative propulsion solutions. Therefore we developing now a new electric pod with oppositely rotating propellers, the A-pod CRP. This new development has the unique feature that each propeller is driven separately, making it the most efficient CRP propeller for the coming years. Especially coasters, ferries and passenger ships with shallow depth find the best solution in the new A-pod CRP.
AVAILABLE IN 2021.
A-POD ST (Transverse Thrusters)
The POD version of our Transverse Thrusters. Silent and no extra engine which saves space.
With our whisper-quiet (up to 6dB), manoeuvrable and compact A-pod propulsion solutions we can support the diverse needs of all our customers, for many types of vessels, such as: • Ferries / Passenger Vessels • Short Sea Vessels / Tugs • Inland Vessels • Oﬀ shore Support Vessels • Fishing Vessels • Yacht building.
Up to moderate power
