One of the newest additions to Brunvoll's product range is the new size of the ducted pushing azimuth propeller known as the AUP105-series. Great effort and emphasize have been put into developing a compact and efficient azimuth thruster with excellent station keeping capabilities. Fast response and azimuth rotation speed are tuned to suit these types of vessels, which use the majority of their operations in DP-modes.
Ship designers also put a great deal of effort into reducing the noise and vibration levels from the tunnel thrusters when designing vessels for offshore wind operations. The reasoning for this is to enhance the work environment onboard the vessel and reduce the omitted noise to the surroundings. Brunvoll low-noise tunnel thrusters and rim-driven tunnel thruster was developed for cruise ships, superyachts, and research vessel, but are also ideal for such applications where the vessel uses the tunnel thrusters for station keeping. A low-noise tunnel thruster from Brunvoll has a 11-15% noise reduction compared to a conventional tunnel thruster.
ESVAGT's new SOV with full propulsion and maneuvering system from Brunvoll. Currently under construction at Cemre Shipyard in Turkey and is schedule to enter into operation in the end of 2024.
SOV's primarily operate in DP-modes, and Brunvoll has explored the possibilities to make its DP-models as energy efficient as possible. BruCon DP features adjustable station keeping accuracy, a dynamic DP-model, and heading optimization. These features combined contribute to reducing fuel and energy consumption while cutting emissions.
Brunvoll can also offer the retractable azimuth thruster to fully complement our portfolio of propulsors for the SOV segment. The well proven retractable azimuth thruster is well suited for SOV operational profile and will contribute to make the SOV even more versatile and efficient
Brunvoll can also offer the retractable azimuth thruster to fully complement our portfolio of propulsors for the wind farm service segment. The well-proven retractable azimuth thruster is well-suited for the operational profile for both SOVs and CSOVs and will contribute to make the vessels even more versatile and efficient.
