This is a significant project for not only our company but for the whole machine-building industry of Russia. Each of the major thruster nodes (control system, lubrication system, hydraulics, housings, shafts, and gears) will be manufactured in Russia by the cooperation of several companies.

Technical solutions of this project differ from classical thruster-design schemes and let decrease time-to-market and price, while maintaining product reliability. There will be implemented a brand new technology of EC-gearing, created and developed by our partners of Tomsk-based company “Technology Market”.

The set of 2 thrusters, 2.5 MW each, will be shipped to Yaroslavsky Shipyard for marine tugboat project 23470, ice class Arc4.
