New SCHOTTEL M-series: Proven SRP available in medium-size

With medium-sized azimuth thrusters, SCHOTTEL meets new challenges on the international maritime market. These include shifted engine power classes, new ice class rules and the growing trend towards electric or hybrid drive vessels. Combining the latest technologies in mechanical engineering, hydrodynamics, and digitalization, the medium-sized thrusters are available in three sizes corresponding to the common engine power classes: SRP 210 (640 kW), SRP 240 (850 kW) and SRP 270 (1,000 kW).


Suitable for any vessel type and application
These new SCHOTTEL M-series azimuth thrusters offer the right solution for any vessel type and application with a range of various power source options and input directions. The azimuth modules are available for Z-drives, L-drives and ZY-hybrid drives, making them suitable for horizontal electric, vertical electric or combined direct engine plus horizontal electric motor connection. Thus, the M-series thrusters are also compatible with hybrid solutions – such as SCHOTTEL SYDRIVE.


No vessel design modifications required
Thanks to two basic installation variants, the M-series works with any type of vessel design. Besides the standard installation with variable propeller arm length, a compact minimized variant with shorter propeller arm length is available. These compact installation variants (LC for L-drives, ZC for Z-drives) open up new scope and greater design freedom for ship designers, while leaving more space for other equipment. Both the standard and the compact variant can be bolted, welded or resiliently mounted on vessels.

Great versatility
The new SCHOTTEL M-series features a modular system that allows for multiple configuration options. Great versatility and flexibility in the medium power range, high reliability, optimal spare part availability, and good retrofit options – all combined with the best propulsion efficiency thanks to latest hydrodynamic optimization and mechanic design.

Les propulseurs hélices-gouvernails SCHOTTEL (SRP) sont des systèmes combinant la propulsion et l'orientation, à des puissances allant jusqu'à 6190 kW, et qui transforment la puissance moteur en poussée optimale. Le boîtier porte-hélice pouvant être orienté sur 360°, on peut de ce fait, utiliser la pleine puissance pour la manœuvre ou le positionnement dynamique du navire. Une manœuvrabilité maximale, un rendement optimal, un fonctionnement économique, une installation permettant de gagner de l'espace et une maintenance simple, sont quelques uns des atouts majeurs de ce concept de propulsion simple et fiable, qui a prouvé ses qualités dans le monde entier, dans des conditions tropicales comme arctiques, sur tous les types de navires.
