DMC delivers biggest Pump Jet Housing ever

18 February 2013

DMC proudly announces the delivery of the biggest Pump Jet Housing ever to our client SCHOTTEL GmbH.

The SCHOTTEL Pump-Jet is a special-purpose azimuthing thruster which provides full thrust in all directions. It is distinguished by its compact and robust design and covers a power range from 50 to 3,500 kW. Typical for the SPJ is its ability to operate in shallow water.

Supplying full thrust at a minimum immersion of 150 to 750 mm, depending on the model involved, it can also be used on vessels with a very shallow draught. The SCHOTTEL SPJ has proved its worth as a reliable manoeuvring system, take-home device and main propulsion unit on a wide range of watercraft.

The by DMC delivered SPJ Pump jet Housing is of the type SPJ 520 with a diameter of 4,300 mm, a height of 2060 mm and a weight of around 15 t.

Destination of the SPJ 520 will be a new deep sea scientific survey ship.
