Rolls-Royce has signed a contract for the delivery of 12 azimuthing thrusters to Sanmar Shipyard in Turkey, with an option for an additional 30 units.
 
The azimuth thrusters from Rolls-Royce, will provide propulsion for 6 tugboats rising to 21 if the option is exercised. Each tugboat has a bollard pull of 60 to 80 metric tons.
 
An azimuthing thruster is a propeller that can be rotated 360 degrees around its vertical axes, providing thrust in any direction. Rolls-Royce range of azimuth thrusters therefore offer superior manoeuvrability and is a well proven technology with a robust construction. They are manufactured at the company’s Rauma site in Finland.
 
The contracted thrusters will be delivered during 2016, to be installed on vessels for European and Middle East tug operators. The deliveries from Rolls-Royce include a thruster control system
