    The Right Propulsion System for Every Situation

    Be it out at sea or in port, on rivers or lakes – Voith’s customtailored propulsion systems ensure precise, prompt and safe maneuvering. Our propulsion solutions are specifically designed for all maritime tasks and

    Propulsion system technology is key to operate vessels efficiently and with a high degree of safety. Matching the propulsion system to the vessel design is equally important. With more than 86 years of experience, Voith provides Propulsion systems tailored to the application.

    The Voith propulsion system portfolio

    In addition to the proven Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP) with its stepless, precise and prompt generation of thrust in all directions, the Voith Radial Propeller (VRP) is part of the Voith propulsion system portfolio. One of the vessels the VRP is installed in is the Castoro Sei, a 152-meter work boat used for pipe-laying.

    Voith Inline Thrusters (VIT) and Voith Inline Propulsors (VIP) are CFRP-based propellers used as propulsion systems or thrusters. They require neither axles nor shafts or gearing. The Voith Linear Jet (VLJ) combines the best properties of propellers with the best properties of waterjets. As is the case with VSP and VIT/VIP, the Voith Linear Jet (VLJ) can for example be used on ferries and yachts. Voith Turbo Marine Engineering designs complete vessel concepts.
