Thanks to specially developed lifting and sealing techniques, these azimuth thrusters can be mounted or dismantled underwater.These are large azimuth thrusters that can be mounted directly to the hull.
The underwater mounting Rexpeller is the perfect solution for drillships, semi-submersible rigs, FPSO units and other offshore vessels.
· Safe, easy installation
· No dry-docking required for thruster maintenance
An azimuth thruster suspended by a cable is lowered into the water and then lifted with another cable extending from the hull.
Kawasaki began production of Rexpeller azimuth thrusters in 1983 and has since delivered approximately 1,000 units. Moving forward, the company hopes to continue contributing to maritime shipping and other marine industries around the world through the provision of propulsion equipment that offers excellent propulsive performance, energy savings and environmental performance for various ships.
