Today, ABB’s Azipod propulsion systems are used on a wide range of vessels such as cruise ships, icebreakers, ice-going cargo vessels and. WITH AZIPOD PROPULSION SYSTEMS. The manuscript delivered, March Abstract: Large ships, mainly large cruise vessels, built during last two decades. Azipod cruise ship propulsion system Today I met the old friend Captain on LNG’s and we started discussion about azipod system which his.

Currently you have JavaScript sysfem. Ten shipping books we read in Archived from the original PDF on For this country please use ABB’s partner contact details. Reduced noise and vibration. ClassNK announces partial revision on the ptopulsion vessel rules. For the shipyard, fitting a pod drive system is a single lift operation instead of proulsion and checking thrust bearing, shaftlines, sterntubes, seals and possibly gearboxes.

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in ABB. Swiss-based power and automation company ABB is launching a new version of its popular Azipod propulsion unit that it says is up to 10 percent more efficient than existing versions. Among vessels provided with Compact Azipod there are: I need more information ABB Sales.

ABB fuel savings ship propulsion.

ABB says Azipod propulsion system saved over 700,000 tons of fuel

The fuel consumption and thus exhaust emissions are reduced due to improved hydrodynamic efficiency and the power plant concept. ABB’s website uses cookies. Click here for instructions on how to enable JavaScript in your browser.


Because it can rotate around its mount axis, the pod can apply its thrust in any direction. Pulling type propeller is also working in an optimum environment with highest efficiency.

Over torque can also be utilized e. We will get back to you as soon as possible. In the existing propulsion installation of the 16,dwt Arctic tanker UIKKU was replaced by a cycloconverter-controlled How small propulsipn can power smarter options. Please try again later or go to https: The development of the prototype started in and the first unit was ready for installation in the following year. Satakunta University of Applied Sciences. Sea trial azipkd were encouraging: Unlike the ordinary single or double wound synchronous AC motor of conventional Ptopulsion concept, the Compact Azipod unit incorporates a permanent magnet synchronous motor and therefore has no cooling on the rotor.

All the improvements have been tested extensively using scaled versions in laboratory conditions, ABB says.

Please select country from the list below. After the refit, the vessel’s icebreaking performance was considerably increased and she was also found out to be capable of breaking ice astern backwards.

AZIPOD (Azimuthing Podded Drive)

Major cyber attacks reported in maritime industry. Unlocking the benefits of renewable propulsion Diane Gilpin. The pod’s propeller usually faces forward because in this pulling or tractor configuration the propeller is more efficient azipld to operation in undisturbed flow.


The propeller is coupled to the prime mover with shafts and bevel gears that allow rotating the propeller about a vertical axis. The Azipod XL concept can be designed to give high bollard pull thrust at lower speed and still have good characteristics at higher speeds. Patel 17 February Sharing the burden of greening: Improved hydrodynamic efficiency is a result of reduced hull resistance when traditional shatfline and related brackets can be eliminated and optimum hull design can be utilized.
