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
