Van der Velden COMMANDER™ rotary vane steering gear is ideal for all commercial oceangoing vessels as well as superyachts and inland ships. The simple, robust and compact design of the steering gear and the fact that it only has one movable part ensures trouble-free, maintenance-free operation. Significant cost savings are the obvious long-term result.
This system is available in rudder angles up to 2 x 65 degrees, giving greater flexibility when choosing the design and type of your rudders. The integrated rudder carrier is part of the actuator. Bearings are designed to take the full vertical load of the rudder and rudder stock, with no additional rudder carrier being needed.
