German propulsion expert SCHOTTEL has delivered main propulsion units for a 42-metre ferry to Netherlands-based Holland Shipyards Group. The recently launched "Sandøy" is the first fully electric ferry for the Norwegian operator Brevik Fergeselskap and is equipped with two SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers. It will operate within the waters of Eidangerfjorden, southeastern Norway, and will connect Brevik with Sandøya and Bjørkøya.
Two SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers type SRP 710 have left the German production site in Wismar and are on their way to the Turkish shipyard Med Marine for installation in a new tug. The salvage tug, which has been ordered by Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) will be equipped with main and auxiliary propulsion systems from SCHOTTEL. By this, the vessel will achieve an expected bollard pull of more than 120 tonnes. The Robert Allan RAstar 4200 (MED-A42120) design vessel is considered the largest tugboat on the East African Coast of the Indian Ocean.
The new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) "Hegemann V" for German Detlef Hegemann Aktiengesellschaft will be equipped with SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers. Currently under construction at Netherlands-based Kooiman Marine Group, the dredger is designed to execute multiple types of dredging activities at specific locations. Due to its relatively short length of about 75.9 metres in combination with the SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers, the vessel will be optimally manoeuvrable even in narrow rivers.
With the novel SCHOTTEL LE-Drive ("Embedded L-Drive"), the German propulsion expert meets the increasing demand for electric drive concepts. As the propulsion systems are compatible with electric motors of all types and manufacturers, the LE-Drive allows a free choice of electric motor for diesel-electric or purely battery-powered vessels. Thanks to its compact design, the integrated LE-Drive allows even more freedom in vessel design compared to conventional Z and L variants.
Singapore-based Sembcorp Marine relies on SCHOTTEL’s azimuthal hybrid drive system SYDRIVE-E for the world’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) hybrid tug. With this first in a series of 12 vessels, Sembcorp Marine will build the world’s first hybrid LNG-fueled tug fleet that will replace its existing diesel-powered tugs. The vessel is designed by LMG Marin, a wholly owned Sembcorp Marine subsidiary, and a leading naval architecture design house in Bergen, Norway, which provides energy efficient solutions.
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.
