Voith Turbo contributes to moving millions of people, goods and machines reliably. Our highly advanced technologies transmit and control powers under extreme conditions – safely and resource-sparingly. Drive components and systems from Voith Turbo can be found in a wide variety of industries: they are installed wherever power has to be converted into controlled movement.
Propulsion system technology is key to operate vessels efficiently and with a high degree of safety. With more than 86 years of experience, Voith provides both: propulsion systems tailored to the application in question and complete vessel concepts designed by Voith Engineering.
In addition to the proven Voith Schneider Propeller(VSP) with its stepless, precise and prompt generation of thrust in all directions, Voith Inline Thrusters(VIT) and Voith Inline Propulsors(VIP) are CFRP-based propellers used as propulsion systems or thrusters, The Voith Linear Jet combines the best properties of propellers with the best properties of waterjets.
Voith Schneider Propeller
Propulsion and steering - ahead, astern and sideways: The Voith Schneider Propeller(VSP) developed more than 86 years ago generates thrust in all directions. Propulsion and steering are combined in one unit, thus allowing prompt, safe and precise maneuvering, even under adverse conditions. The VSP is suitable for a wide range of applications - from harbor tugs to offshore applications. The VSP is distinguished by its high reliability and low maintenance requirements.
Voith Linear Jet
The Voith Linear Jet(VLJ) combines the best properties of propellers with those of waterjets. Low installation complexity, low sensitivity to marine fouling, sustained high efficiency at low vessel speeds and high bollard pull are borrowed from the propeller side. Reduced vessel draft thanks to its integration to the hull, the ability to reach high speeds with high efficiency and low noise and vibration levels are borrowed from the waterjet side.
Voith Inline Thruster
Minimum vibration and noise emissions, prompt steering response and efficient thrust generation - these were the targets set by Voith for the development of a new propulsion system. The results are the Voith Inline Thruster(VIT) and Voith Inline Propulsor(VIP) rim drive systems. The VIT is the ideal transverse thruster for use in the bow or stern. It significantly improves the vessel's maneuvering.
