SCHOTTEL RimThruster

Silent, compact, environmentally friendly – the SCHOTTEL RimThruster combines great drive system power with maximum comfort on board. As a purely electric propulsion system, i.e. without resonance-generating mechanical components, it is characterized by minimum noise and vibration levels. This makes it ideally suited for use in passenger shipping. Thanks to its special design, the compact SRT also boasts a wide range of installation options, enabling large space gains in a vessel.
