MIT has announced that as of the 1st April 2019 it has been appointed by Veth Propulsion to represent their Azimuth Thruster and Bow Thruster portfolio within the UK and Ireland.

Established in Papendrecht in the Netherlands, simplicity and quality is at the core of Veth’s design and manufacturing, operating as a leader in exceptional (auxiliary) propulsion systems since 1951.

Acquired in 2019, Veth Propulsion now forms part of the Twin Disc Group of companies.

Suitable for a wide range of applications, Veth Propulsion solutions offer flexibility of design resulting in several available configurations. Along with traditional diesel power, the technology provided by Veth Propulsion is also able to be powered by environmentally friendly fully electric propulsion, putting more options in the hands of the end user.

Aside from azimuth thrusters, Veth has an extensive range of shallow draft horizontal bow thrusters which meet the requirements of a demanding marine market. With this unique design, users can expect high thrust even at cruising speeds along with 360° of thrust direction.

The dynamic partnership of MIT and Veth Propulsion elevates bespoke propulsion with every application treated as an individual project, offering different drive options meeting the needs of specific build designs and vessel requirements whether the application calls for diesel-direct, diesel-electric / LNG-electric, hydraulic or a combination of these.

Veth Propulsion has solutions for vessels including; Inland marine, Dredging, Seagoing vessels, Passenger vessels, Offshore, Ferries, Workboats & Tugs, Megayachts, Navy, Fishery and Towboats.

John Logue, Managing Director, MIT said: “Our new partnership with Veth Propulsion enables us to offer the UK and Irish customer’s world-class thruster technology powered by diesel and renewable sources. This is a massive benefit to the UK and Irish markets and helps to provide a truly competitive and effective solution.”

MIT is the sole UK/EIRE distributors of Twin Disc, Transfluid, Rubber Design, Arneson, Rolla and Quincy compressors.

MIT will officially launch Veth Propulsion at Seawork 2019, where they will display a true to life Veth Integrated L-Drive propulsion model.
