The Schottel Group, the propulsion and steering expert, will be back with a whole host of new innovative products at this year’s SMM exhibition in Hamburg.

Schottel is introducing a new propeller system designed to replace the Rudderpropeller (SRP) which was invented over 65 years ago.

The new system has a simpler orientation. In the centre is the efficient electric Schottel EcoPeller (SRE), a thruster optimised for the open sea and coastal operating conditions.

Furthermore, the system includes the electric Schottel Rim Thruster (SRT), a space-saving lower-weight drive converting electrical energy directly into propulsion without transmission losses. With its minimised noise and vibration levels, the thruster is ideal for vessels frequently operating in DP mode or whenever utmost comfort is needed.

At SMM, Schottel will also present new application related solutions. One is a Rudderpropeller (SRP) for shallow water applications for push boats or an SRP with PTI, a compact hybrid drive, or for vessels with highly variable work cycles.
