SCHOTTEL has been awarded a contract from Master Boat Builders, Alabama, U.S.A., for the supply of four rudder propellers for two newly built tugs of the U.S.-based operator Suderman & Young Towing Company (S&Y). Beyond this, the tugs will feature MariHub, the IoT Gateway and monitoring solution from SCHOTTEL.
The German medium-sized company SCHOTTEL, which is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary, will be promoting more talented and high-achieving students this year. In keeping with the anniversary motto “Powerful heritage. Bright future.”, the propulsion manufacturer based in Spay/Rhine will financially support six German scholarships for naval architecture students at the Hamburg University of Technology starting with the winter semester 2021/22. Besides financial support, the students will also receive non-monetary support: through mentoring programs, for example. Hamburg University of Technology is responsible for the application and selection process.
SCHOTTEL is selected to equip the largest U.S.-flagged, self-propelled trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Frederick Paup with three rudder propellers type SRP 510 L FP. The dredger will be owned and operated by Manson Construction Co., and is currently under construction at the Keppel AmFELS Shipyard in Brownsville, Texas. It will be 128 m in length, have a 25 m breadth and about 9 m draught and will have a hopper volume of 11,500 m3. The vessel will represent Manson’s single biggest investment in its 116-year history.
2021 is a special year for SCHOTTEL: the 21st November marks the 100th anniversary of the company’s founding by Josef Becker. The trained locksmith opened his workshop in a small German village on the Rhine and almost 30 years later he wrote shipping history by inventing the rudder propeller that is steerable through 360 degrees.
With a milestone project for South America, the Brazilian towage group Starnav is setting sails to reach the IMO 2030 goals: Starnav has contracted Detroit shipyard in Itajaí, Brazil, for equipping four newly built tugs with SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers. One of the 32 metre long and 11.6 metre wide escort tugs will feature the SCHOTTEL patented SYDRIVE-M technology right from start; the other three will be configured to be SYDRIVE-ready. As a mechanical hybrid solution without the costly complexity of common hybrid technology, SYDRIVE-M will ensure lower maintenance costs and less fuel consumption.
