Separate gear shaft

Our patented separate gear shaft allows for constant gear play under any condition.

As a result fuel efficiency gets improved, trip times become shorter due to increased manoeuvrability, and maintenance downtime gets decreased, when compared to traditional shaft and rudder installations.

Range

The Z-drive thrusters are available in a range from 400kW up to 2400kW.

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.

Separate gear shaft

The gearwheel is mounted on a separate gear shaft and not effected by bending of the propeller shaft and thus under any load the backlash is constant.

Pinion shaft cartridge

The pinion gear is pre-mounted in a cartridge with top and bottom bearings around the gear.

Double sealing arrangement

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