Hollow drive shaft

Our patented hollow shaft drives a planetary gearbox that, in turn, drives a propeller shaft that extends through the whole POD housing.

Due to the reduction ratio of the planetary gearbox, the propeller will always run at its most economical speed, resulting in optimal performance in terms of efficiency and thrust.

Range

The V-POD is available in a range from 330kW up to 2500kW, either with open propeller or in a nozzle.


The V-Pod's unique properties

Long ‘flexible’ propeller shaft
Integrated electric motor
Planetary reduction gear
Double sealing arrangement
Long ‘flexible’ propeller shaft

The long propeller shaft is perfect to absorb any shock load coming from the propeller. It has a low bending moment and can easily be replaced.

Integrated electric motor

Integrated high speed permanent magnet electric motor. Low in weight, high efficiency and very compact.

Planetary reduction gear

Very robust planetary gear reduction for optimum propeller speed in any application.

Double sealing arrangement

Double mechanical seal construction with cofferdam. Oil/water leakage is being drawn inside, so no leakage to the surface water.
