Thanks to its compact design, the integrated LE-Drive (“embedded L-Drive”) allows more freedom in vessel design. In addition to this, it offers extremely low vibration and noise levels. The thruster’s controllable pitch propeller enables efficiency increases by means of pitch adjustment.

The delivered type also permits the full-feathering function, enabling the propeller blades to be moved to a low-resistance position if required.

Since its market launch, the SRE has been gaining use in almost all vessel segments. Thanks to the particularly effective combination of powerful propeller thrust and lateral force, the SRE fulfils all the requirements of a modern high-performance propulsion unit.

The hydrodynamically optimized design allows the thruster to produce maximum steering forces and enables top values in terms of overall efficiency and course keeping ability. This reduces fuel consumption and ensures both lower operating costs and emissions.
