Verhaar Omega

Verhaar Omega has been a household name in the national and international shipping industry for more than 50 years.

As a manufacturer of bow thruster installations and propulsion systems, we have been guaranteeing quality and reliability since 1967. Worldwide there are more than 4000 inland vessels and sea-going vessels with installations by Verhaar Omega.

What we do

We develop, innovate, produce and deliver maritime products. Verhaar Omega is the right place for service-oriented, technical and high-quality products.

Channel Thrusters

Channel bow thrusters have been specially developed for ships sailing in shallow water and are used for both auxiliary and main thrust.

Steering Grid

Steering grilles can be used as main and auxiliary or emergency drive. Our control grilles can be driven electrically, hydraulically or by means of a diesel engine.

Gondola (Channel) Thrusters

The gondola bow thruster is based on the channel bow thruster. This variant is installed outside the ship in a gondola or bow vessel.


Our compact screw and piston compressors are the perfect solution for supplying compressed air on board various ships.
