Delivery program

The thruster market is constantly changing, which means the demands to the thruster design naturally evolve. Verhaar Omega closely collaborates with naval architects, classification societies, and owners, to achieve an optimal product definition. Based on lists of requirements and demands, propulsion systems are subjected to a continuous development process.

Verhaar Omega offer powerful, cost-effective, and efficient propulsion and manoeuvring systems, for the widest range of vessels. Depending on the thruster type and the kind of drive, each thruster has a typical power range: as a result, a large range of thrusters, varying in power and dimension, are available. Taking into account the required manoeuvrability of the vessel, dedicated thrusters can be developed to suit a large number of applications. Precise client needs are targeted by means of functional market segmentation: inland shipping, river and coastal shipping, ferries, yachts, harbour and sea-going tugs, ocean-going (cargo) vessels, workboats, semi-submersibles, supply vessels, tankers and other offshore systems, or even military applications.

Each area has different requirements, for which Verhaar Omega engineers and technicians develop the appropriate solutions; thrusters for use in ice-bound areas, for example, demand a more in-depth approach to design. In addition, Verhaar Omega thrusters are designed to meet the requirements of all leading classification societies.

To fulfill the numerous demands of the many vessel types used around the world, Verhaar Omega engineers individually design thrusters, with options relating to the type of input power (prime movers), controls, and accessories. This includes - but is not limited to - electric or hydraulic motors, diesel engines and clutches, variable frequency drives, engine starters and control panels, fixed and portable wireless bridge (wing) control panels, and PLC interfaces, including ship’s monitoring and control systems (PMS, VDR, DP).
