When escorting, Voith Water Tractors can transfer immense towing forces to the big vessels via the tow line. The Voith Turbo Fin increases these forces by 25%.
The Voith Turbo Fin is a rotating cylinder at the end of the skeg and ensures a stable, laminar flow. This permits large angles of attack without the flow stalling. The steering forces thus increase. Voith Water Tractors equipped with a Voith Turbo Fin are therefore much safer when it comes to escorting large vessels.
