Advantages of VETUS bow thrusters

    • A single propeller creates less flow disturbance in the tunnel
    • The VETUS unique propeller blade design minimises cavitation noise
    • Spiral gears minimise transmission noise
    • The use of a flexible coupling between tail piece and motor eliminates vibration
    • All VETUS systems use a streamlined tail piece for optimum flow
    • A strong synthetic propeller eliminates corrosion and reduces weight
    • Systems are easy to install, supplied with clear installation and operation instructions
    • VETUS systems use a new line of high quality aluminium control panels which are interchangeable with older panels
    • All VETUS manoeuvring systems meet the EMC requirements
