Direct power transmission using a vertical top-mounted electric motor eliminates the need for special shaft and quick-release coupling arrangements when the thruster is lowered into and retracted from the working position. This solution also eliminates the need for gearboxes to connect the prime mover to the thruster – resulting in better total efficiency.
