Brunvoll will supply azimuth propulsion systems to four new dredgers

Brunvoll has secured an important contract, as a result of its strategic and extensive development of azimuth propulsion systems. The contract with a foreign navy includes propulsion systems for four vessels. The dredgers will serve both the naval and civil needs for dredging of ports and other shallow waters.

The vessels are 86 meters long and will have a crew of14 people. All vessels will be built at local shipyards in the customer's homecountry.

 

Brunvoll's deliveries consist of two azimuthpropulsion units, each 900 kW, one tunnel thruster of  
600 kW, andassociated control systems, per ship set. 

 

"This contract is another proof thatBrunvoll has the capability to succeed in stronginternational competition. Our long-term and strategic commitment to productdevelopment combined with targeted sales and marketing work gives usbreakthroughs in ever new markets and segments ", says SalesDirector Per Olav Løkseth. 

  

"The contract is an important contribution tostrengthening our position in the azimuth propulsion segment. Working fora new customer in a new market is extra rewarding and motivating. 

The dredgers operate under demandingconditions and the equipment on board requires excellent operatingcharacteristics and high quality. The deliveries also represent animportant contribution to our factory utilisation in Molde in 2022, which isvery positive for our employees. » Løkseth continues. 

  

"The global shipbuilding market is somewhathesitant after the covid pandemic - with relatively few contracts for newbuildings in many of our segments. Based onthis, we are very pleased with our market share. Although the outlook for thefuture is characterised by some uncertainty in the newbuilding market,we strongly believe that we will continue to further strengthen ourposition as a preferred partner for our customers globally " concludesLøkseth. 

  

Brunvoll's azimuth propulsion thrusters are designedfor vessels with the highest requirements for operational reliability with aminimum of downtime. The units are designed with focus on excellenthydrodynamic properties and maximum propulsion efficiency. These thrusterscan be used for most vessel types. 

  

Brunvoll is a supplier of complete propulsion andmanoeuvring systems for all types of ships. This includes azimuthpropulsion units, propellers with shaft lines and reduction gears, tunnel thrusters,rudders and steering machines, control and positioningsystems, as well as energy systems. All development, design and productiontake place in Norway.
