Controllable pitch propellers are used wherever maximum thrust and manoeuvrability at changing speeds and loads are needed. The adjustability of the propeller blades makes them particularly suitable for vessels that have to fulfil a wide-ranging operational profile. The propellers are designed according to the customer’s individual requirements using state-of-the-art calculation methods such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Operators thus benefit from a high degree of efficiency with lower fuel and operating costs.
SCHOTTEL ControllablePropellers are available in 4- and 5-blade versions with optional full-feathering function.
With the new SRP-D ("Dynamic"), SCHOTTEL is launching a rudder propeller that even better meets the increased requirements for the efficient operation of W2W vessels. Based on the proven principle of the rudder propeller, an economical yet powerful solution has been developed that greatly improves the positional accuracy of the vessel in DP operation. Operators benefit from the significant increase in performance and thus possible operating times in close proximity to offshore structures, especially in demanding weather conditions.
Digital products and services open up numerous possibilities for optimizing ship operations—whether for tugs, ferries or offshore supply vessels. SCHOTTEL experts present new solutions and explain how operators can benefit from them in their daily work
The Wismar SCHOTTEL subsidiary specializes in the development and production of particularly large propulsion systems. In a production and storage area of 15,000 square metres, propulsion units for extra powerful vessels are manufactured. Even though the site is experienced with large dimensions, each machine is impressive in its size like these customer specific versions.
