The RHEINSTROM bow thrusters are available with a drive power of 2 to 35 kW. This makes it possible to equip each ship to measure. We use specially designed gearboxes in our bow thrusters. The underwater section and the Kaplanpropeller are particularly aerodynamically shaped and of course made of seawater resistant gunmetal. Shaft and screws are made of stainless steel. The electric motor, the relays and the control are all designed for a long service life.

You expect: maximum thrust - quiet operation - long service life - no maintenance. All bow thrusters are available with a cross tube in steel, fiberglass, stainless steel or aluminum. In the case of aluminum version, gearboxes are made of ALSI 7 mg and crossmember made of Al mg 4.5. The bow thruster is ready wired and sealed on request in the cross tube. This allows you a trouble-free installation. The controller has a plug for an additional splash-proof control panel, z. B. for the flybridge. The installation position of the motor can be adapted to the space available in the ship. He is 360 ° swiveling and can be rotated four times on its flange. We supply our bow thrusters in 12 and 24 Volt for battery operation as well as in 400 Volt for generator operation. Where there is no generator for larger ships, or the existing one too small, we recommend the drive through Hydraulics. We are pleased to offer you these systems after agreement of all technical possibilities.
