Silent Thruster Wins Innovation Award


Silent Thruster Wins Innovation Award

The advanced EPS Silent Thruster from Van der Velden Marine Systems (Germany) has won the prestigious Design at METS award. In addition to being overall winner of the DAME Award 2005, the EPS was also an acclaimed winner of the Propulsion, Machinery, Electrical and Mechanical category. The EPS Silent Thruster was chosen from 172 entries. This new thruster has no gap between the propeller blades and the tunnel, removing the main source of noise.

The unique construction, without gear or propeller shaft, also means that the EPS Silent Thruster is amazingly compact. Taking up just one third of the space of a conventional thruster, it is simple to install. A flexible rubber mounting further eliminates noise and vibration. The EPS Silent Thruster also offers substantial savings in weight. The thruster is maintenance friendly with lightweight blades simple to fit and exchange. The first version EPS 800 (110,132, 160 kW) is already available. Other models EPS 650 (75, 90 kW), EPS 550 (55, 75 kW) and EPS 450 (22, 37 kW) are planned to be released over the next year. In addition to the fixed thrusters, Van der Velden Marine Systems are now working on retractable systems and utilising the EPS concept for propulsion systems.
