Electrohydraulic steering gear with single-acting cylinders
With a reputation for reliability, strength, durability and quality, the conventional single-acting ram-type steering gear can be delivered in a hand-hydraulic version for smaller vessels and in only hydraulic (PTO) an (electro-)hydraulic versions for larger ships.
For vessels with a reduced-space steering gear compartment, we can provide a compact steering gear type with built-on power units and an incorporated upper-rudder carrier bearing.
All steering gear can be delivered with a number of options - electric starters, control, alarm and monitoring systems, upper-rudder carrier bearing and electric rudder-angle indicator systems.
Rudder torques up to 2500 kNm and rudder angles of 2x45° are achievable by this Steering Gear type. Single and multiple rudder steering gear arrangements are available.
