The Van der Velden COMMANDER™ rotary vane steering system is ideal for all sea-going vessels as well as superyachts and naval vessels. The high-end design consists of an integrated tiller and cylinder, which generates an equal high torque in all possible steering angles. It is safe in operation because of only one rotating part. Relatively low maintenance.
This system is available for steering angles up to 65 degrees. The wide torque range of the rotary vane gives greater flexibility in choosing the rudder system.The integrated tiller and cylinder are part of the actuator. The actuator of the rotary vane is designed to take the full vertical load of the rudder and rudder stock, making a separate rudder carrier rudder redundant.
DMC (Retrofit) Rudder Bulb
The DMC rudder bulb is an energy saving device that improves the propeller wake field. In operation, the bulb will reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The rudder bulb reduces rotational losses of the propeller an increases thrust at high loads.Read More
The BOSS is able to calculate the rudder forces for specific angles, which are not measured or displayed by any of the ship’s navigation systems.
The BARKE® rudder is the solution if you are looking to invest in today and tomorrow.Read More
