Trust your thrusters.
At sea, anything can happen. Operators do mistakes and things can break. Our thrusters are designed to fail-safe, with built in functionality that secures minimal or no harm to the boat, other equipment onboard or to people.
At our ISO 9001 certified factory, we control of the entire production process. Our long experience from engineering and high volume manufacturing gives us unique insight into how our solutions perform. Year after year.
Sleipner thrusters are recognized world wide for their excellent hydrodynamic gear leg design and efficient propellers. This gives considerably more thrust for the same amount of power and facilitates power management.
Hydraulic or Electric?
A hydraulic thruster system is a natural choice when extensive thruster usage or long run cycles are required or when power requirements are above the DC thruster range. Hydraulic thrusters will also be the right choice on vessels with other hydraulic consumers like stabilizers, winches, capstans, and cranes.
AC electric thrusters cover the same performance range as hydraulic thrusters and are widely used on vessels with no need for hydraulic power for other consumers. AC thrusters are also used in combined high power systems consisting of AC and hydraulic thrusters.
AC thrusters are also perfect for hybrid or fully electric vessels. For these kinds of vessels, we deliver customized solutions powered from the high voltage main DC bus.
DC thrusters, 12V, 24V, and 48V, are traditionally the entry-level into the “world of thrusters.” DC thrusters are the right choice when the thruster is mostly used for docking and the running time is limited.
Engineered for rougher days. Documented for smooth sailing. Enjoy the comfort!
