Marine Bow Thruster
The bow thruster, is a special propeller mounted on the head of the ship. It is used to improve the maneuverability of ships. Bow thrust cabin, which is used at the base of bulbous bow to install bow thruster so that the ship can swing from side to side, is very useful in docking. If there is no bow thruster, port tugboat is needed to assist docking. If there is bow thruster, the captain can dock by himself, which can save a lot of money.

In offshore engineering ships, bow thruster is usually installed on the bow side, there are also tail side thruster, if there is no DP positioning requirements for the bow to install a side thruster is enough, if there is DP2 requirements, the bow to install two side thruster, the tail should also have a side push to meet redundant requirements.
Electric Bow thruster
Drive by Electric motor drive(Voltage 380V,415V,440V) , It is widely installation of bow thruster. Electric motor environment friendly, much less gas pollution discharge. Also with much higher efficiency ,max can be 95% used.
Propeller divided fixed pitch bow thruster and controllable pitch bow thruster
Hydraulic Bow thruster
Drive by hydraulic motor, power supply from hydraulic pack. Hydraulic motor compare with electric motor has much smaller dimension, can save a lot of space.
Engine Bow thruster
Through marine engine with gearbox ,connect bow thruster coupling. Compact structure fit to bow thruster room small vessel. The installation can have L drive and Z dirve.
