An azimuth thruster is a configuration of marine propellers placed in pods that can be rotated to any horizontal angle (azimuth), making a rudder unnecessary. These give ships better maneuverability than a fixed propeller and rudder system. Watching more videos from channel: https://goo.gl/wQd4aC Please like, share and subscribe thank you everyone.
The Rolls-Royce Thruster Support Pool provides replacement units, enabling the exchange of a single or a complete shipset of azimuth and tunnel thrusters as part of a planned maintenance solution, minimising downtime and maximising vessel availability. We understand that our customers require a quick, efficient turnaround when thrusters need to be overhauled Rolls-Royce.

Engine torque is transmitted to propeller via two bevel gear drives. Thrust direction is controlled via a worm drive.

A clean underwater hull without dragging a feathered propeller through the water was, until recently, only seen on racing yachts. Our novel development of direct drive pods, offers this opportunity now also to performance cruising yachts. This is a new advancement which will certainly be used on many future yachts and which offers improved performance, also on existing yachts originally designed for cruising.
The Advanced RotorTug® (ART) is a Robert Allan design provided with the patented Rotortug® propulsion configuration consisting of two diesel driven azimuth thrusters in the fore ship and one diesel driven azimuth thruster in the aft ship. The Rotortugs® have excellent manoeuvrability, high indirect towing forces and superb stability. More information: http://products.damen.com/en/ranges/rotor-tug/art-80_32
