Industry leaders join forces to serve SCHOTTEL's growing fleet on the West Coast
SCHOTTEL will deliver a total of ten rudder propellers and two transverse thrusters to Turkish Sanmar Shipyards. These will be installed in two LNG-fuelled escort tugs, as well as in three battery-powered harbour tugs. Ordered by Canadian HaiSea Marine, a partnership between the Haisla Nation and Seaspan ULC, the vessels will provide ship assist and towing services to LNG carriers stopping at a new LNG export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. All five tugs are scheduled to enter service in 2023.
A new bitumen tanker for France-based Rubis Group, currently under construction at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard, will feature azimuth thrusters from the German propulsion expert. The 15,000-dwt asphalt carrier will be driven by two highly efficient SCHOTTEL EcoPellers and one TransverseThruster. Designed by Swedish FKAB Marine, the vessel will be deployed in West Africa for asphalt transportation services.
The main propulsion package for Jan De Nul’s latest heavy-lift crane vessel "Les Alizés" has left the German production plant in Wismar to reach the CMHI Haimen shipyard in China. The full SCHOTTEL propulsion package consists of four rudder propellers, two retractable rudder propellers, and two transverse thrusters to ensure optimal propulsion efficiency as well as maximum manoeuvrability. "Les Alizés" is currently under construction and will be deployed for the construction of offshore wind farms after its delivery.
SCHOTTEL has supplied main and auxiliary propulsion units for China’s first ice-breaking beacon vessel. "Haixun 156", which will perform a wide range of tasks, has recently been launched by the contracted shipyard Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry Group, Hubei Province, China. It was ordered by the Tianjin Maritime Safety Administration (MSA) and is scheduled to enter operation in September 2021.
German propulsion expert SCHOTTEL has delivered main propulsion units for a 42-metre ferry to Netherlands-based Holland Shipyards Group.

It will operate within the waters of Eidangerfjorden, southeastern Norway, and will connect Brevik with Sandøya and Bjørkøya.
