Reliable overload protection for podded propulsion units in drilling ships
Drilling ships which operate in polar waters are confronted with particular challenges: Brash ice in the water can block the propeller shaft and thus destroy the drive unit. EAS®-element clutches protect reliably against such overload damages in the podded propulsion units by Thrustmaster. These application-optimised clutches are certified by the American Bureau of Shipping.
