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

The AZ-PM thruster is the latest in a range of Rolls-Royce propulsion products using its permanent magnet technology. This technology is based on electric drive where the motor is in the form of a ring round the propeller. The moving part of the ring is a rim around the propeller blades which carries a series of strong permanent magnets. The rotor, fitted within a series of magnets, turns within an outer ring which form the stator. When current is supplied to the motor from the variable frequency power supply the electromagnets are excited in a particular sequence and the resulting magnetic fields interact with the field from the rotor magnets creating a torque that turns the rotor and its propeller blades. At the centre of the thruster the propeller blades are joined to a hub, which h...
In the traditional azimuth propulsion system the motor is inside the ship's hull and the propeller is driven through shafts and gearboxes. In the Azipod system the electric motor is inside the pod, and the propeller is connected directly to the motor shaft. By not using a traditional propeller shaft, the propeller can be farther below the stern of the ship in a clear flow of water providing greater hydrodynamic and mechanical efficiency. Electric power for the Azipod motor is conducted through slip rings that allow the Azipod to rotate through 360 degrees. Because fixed pitch propellers are used in Azipods, power for an Azipod system is always fed through a variable-frequency drive or cycloconverter that allows speed and direction control of the propulsion motors.
Two Hobson's joints replace two bevel gear drives of ordinary azimuth thruster. Thrust direction is controlled by orange lever.
Thrustmaster builds a complete line of Z-Drive azimuthing thrusters from 500 HP to 8,000 HP for the inland towboat industry specifically designed to endure the demanding conditions when operating in brown water. Using Z-drives on towboats results in substantially improved fuel efficiency, shorter trip times, decreased maintenance downtime and higher customer satisfaction when compared to traditional shaft and rudder installations. Vastly improved maneuverability without rudders A Z-drive replaces the propeller, shaft, stern tube, marine gear, rudder and steering gear all with a single unit. Z-Drive azimuthing thrusters provide maximum thrust in any direction, independent of vessel speed, offering superior pinpoint maneuverability under all conditions. Rudders are completely eliminated.

How the captain of the indepedence of the seas docks with help of the bow thrusters and azipods
In today's video I describe how Azipods work! Azipods are engines on a ship that can rotate 360 degrees and replaces the need for a rudder! They also run on electricity which is made by a Diesel Generator which is more fuel efficient!

Engine torque is transmitted to propeller via two double cardan joints. Angle between yellow shaft axes and vertical direction is 45 deg. That ensures a constant velocity transmission. Thrust direction is controlled via a worm drive.

Hydraulic Marine Systems ® performs maneuvering tests on a tug boat retro-fitted with an azimuth style Silver Tsunami ® hydraulic Thruster, September 2013. The vessel, a 38' steel hulled Tug is powered by a newly rebuilt 735HP 692 Detroit diesel engine. The power-train has no gear box or transmission and is equipped with an HMS direct drive hydraulically powered azimuthing thruster. With 180° steering and Variable speed forward / revers thrust, this vessel can outmaneuver ANY conventional powered tug. With the direct drive hydraulic propulsion system the propeller can be moved from full forward to full reverse in less than 3 seconds! This state of the Art propulsion system can be seen in full detail at www.hydraulicmarinesystems.com In addition to the propulsion system, HMS also outfitte...

Azimuth Thrusters Market report categorizes the market by globally based on size, share, key manufacturers, regions, type and application with in depth descriptions having 15 Chapters including 124 Pages View more info @ https://goo.gl/1Jkaws. To deeply display the worldwide information on Azimuth Thrusters market analysis 2017-2022. 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.
