Norwegian ferry operator Torghatten Trafikkselskap recently upgraded one of its ferries' propulsion systems, which involved the installation of two SCHOTTEL EcoPellers (SRE). This move allowed the vessel’s energy consumption, and thus its environmental impact, to be reduced by up to 25 per cent. In an effort to further increase environmental safety, the SRE now also features the DNV type-approved SCHOTTEL LeaCon sealing monitoring system.
The event passenger vessel Rhein Star has successfully and reliably mastered its first season with overhauled propulsion units. Both main propulsion units (two SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers) as well as the auxiliary propulsion unit (one SCHOTTEL PumpJet) were overhauled at the nearest SCHOTTEL workshop after almost 20 years in operation and installed before the start of the season by the Stahlbau Müller shipyard based in Oberwinter, Germany. This increases the operational reliability and availability of the two overhauled SRP 200 (400 kW each) and the SPJ 22 (100 kW) to a maximum during the season.
The German propulsion expert SCHOTTEL has been selected for funding within the Government of Canada's Quiet Vessel Initiative, which supports the development of new quiet vessel technologies, designs, and operational practices, leading to less underwater noise from vessels in Canadian waters.
100 years after the founding of the company, all signs in the SCHOTTEL world point to growth. New products and services: at SMM 2022 (A4.310), the world’s leading trade fair for the maritime industry, the German propulsion expert will bundle the core competences Engineering, Operation and After Sales Service, and will inform about how it is getting ready for the challenges of tomorrow.
With a new rudder propeller optimized for DP use, SCHOTTEL is meeting the growing requirements for W2W vessels to operate efficiently and reliably. The SRP-D ("Dynamic") is a further improved variant for highly demanding DP operations in service operation vessels. When developing the SRP-D, extensive CFD simulations and calculations were taken into account.
The first hydrogen-powered tug worldwide is equipped with SCHOTTEL propulsion systems. The vessel, which will be among the cleanest of the fleet of the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, has recently been launched by the Spanish shipyard Astilleros Armon and will enter operations at the Belgian port in early 2023.
