HYDRAULIC BOW THRUSTERS  AND STERN THRUSTERS

These are the thrusters for the most demanding of work situations and are available in power outputs of 55 Kilograms Force (Kgf), 95 Kgf, 160Kgf, 230Kgf, 310Kgf, 410Kgf and 550Kgf. They operate in hydraulics systems delivering flow rates ranging from 13 litres/3.4 U.S gallons per minute to 91 litres / 24 U.S. gallons per minute, at pressures ranging from 165 bar/ 2393 p.s.i to 280 bar/4061 p.s.i., all depending on thruster model selected.
VETUS hydraulic thrusters are able to run continuously, although not as primary propulsion units. They delivery high power and great reliability, with no electrical connections at the thruster or pump(s) and they need little routine maintenance. These thrusters are available with several control heads, in three control regimens, including proportional control. The skill and knowledge set required to plan, integrate and implement a hydraulic installation work is extensive, and includes all of the skills required to install electric thrusters and a lot more. Such work should not be undertaken by persons, however generally experienced in boat work, who have not received formal training in power hydraulics theory and practice. Access to local hydraulic hose and fitting suppliers is also essential for a well-organized and successful installation. If an existing hydraulic system can deliver the pressure and flow required by the thruster(s) appropriate for your vessel, it is often possible to add VETUS thrusters to the system, but VETUS also offers complete hydraulic systems as described in this catalogue section. 

Whether you buy a complete hydraulic system from VETUS, or just the thrusters, a VETUS customer support team member will review the entire system with you to ensure that your thrusters work well after installation.
