Several passenger vessels from Austrian operator WolfgangseeSchifffahrt were recently fitted with a SCHOTTEL PumpJet type SPJ 30, including the new CoaGrid. With the SPJ 30 (100 kW), which is driven by an electric motor with a battery storage device, the ship owner benefits from zero-emission propulsion power and low-loss power electronics. The manoeuvrability of the vessels is further increased by means of the two previously installed SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers, which are used as the main propulsion units.
Three new multi-purpose vessels ordered from the Abeking & Rasmussen ship and yacht shipyard (A&R) in Lemwerder by the German government for the Waterways and Shipping Administration (WSV) will be equipped with SCHOTTEL propulsion systems. Planning and design as well as tendering and continuous construction supervision are carried out by the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW), Ship Technology division.
German propulsion manufacturer SCHOTTEL has been awarded a contract to deliver main propulsion units for one car ferry to Vancouver-based company Western Pacific Maritime Ltd. The newly built vessel ordered by the British Columbia Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure will be equipped with four high efficiency SCHOTTEL TwinPropellers. Once operational, it will serve the Kootenay Lake in British Columbia. This move will reinforce SCHOTTEL’s strong position in the Canadian ferry market.
SCHOTTEL has delivered propulsion units for nine more newly built cargo vessels. Each of the carriers, designed by the Russian company Marine Engineering Bureau, is equipped with two rudder propellers from the German propulsion expert.
With effect from 1 April 2021, Dirk Wagner will take over as Managing Director at SCHOTTEL Middle East (SME) assuming the responsibilities of Andrew Bull, who will be leaving the company to pursue other interests outside of SCHOTTEL.
SCHOTTEL has been awarded a contract to deliver SCHOTTEL EcoPellers and PumpJets for two new autonomous RoRo ships. They will be operated by ASKO Maritime AS, Norway’s largest grocery wholesaler, and built at Cochin Shipyard (CSL) in India. Both vessels will have full battery-electric propulsion and are designed for transporting trailers across Oslo Fjord between two of ASKO’s distribution centers.
