Marine Hydraulic Bow Thrusters
Hydraulic Bow and Stern Thruster Systems
Phoenix offer a wide choice of bow and stern thrusters, both electric and hydraulic, covering a range of applications from small day boats up to boats of 120'.
To choose the most suitablethruster system it is important to take into considerations some crucial factors such as;
The total surface exposed to the wind force and the marine currents; the bigger the surface, the more powerful the thrusters need to be.
The tunnel diameter; the larger the tunnel diameter is the bigger the potential thrust is, and the more water that can be moved.
In applications where a long working time is required it is preferable to choose a hydraulic thrustersystem over an electric system.
The tunnel length; the longer the tunnel the higher the loss of efficiency. Any grid placed at the ends of the tunnel may affect the thrust.
