Voith at SMM 2018

Drive New Ways

    Experience Voith at the SMM 2018 in Hamburg from September 4-7. We look forward to welcoming you at our Booth 203 in Hall A4.

    Whether out at sea or in port, on rivers or lakes – Voith’s custom-tailored propulsion systems ensure precise, prompt and safe maneuvering. Our propulsion solutions are specifically designed for all maritime tasks and requirements.

    In addition to the proven Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP) with its stepless, precise and prompt generation of thrust in all directions, Voith Inline Thrusters (VIT) and Voith Inline Propulsors (VIP) are used as propulsion systems or thrusters. They require neither axles nor shafts or gearing. The Voith Linear Jet (VLJ) combines the best properties of propellers with the best properties of waterjets. Beyond our product highlights, we will showcase our service solutions that provide maximum flexibility and convenience for today's and future challenges.

    Stop by, meet us at the SMM 2018, and see what we mean by “Drive New Ways”.

      Highlights

        CARROUSEL RAVE TUG

        Even today, maneuvering of ships poses a significant risk of capsizing for tugboats. A new era in tugboat history is set with the innovative CARROUSEL RAVE TUG (CRT), which was developed in cooperation with Robert Allan Ltd. and Novatug B.V. It eliminates the risk of capsizing and thus protects both man and machine during this ever more challenging and dangerous work - this all under significantly reduced fuel requirements. Come by and learn more about the first experiences with this revolutionary new type of towing equipment.

        Vessel simulator and competition

        As a visitor of our booth you are invited to learn how to steer a Voith Water Tractor, a Double-ended Ferry and the revolutionary CARROUSEL RAVE TUG (CRT). With the aid of the Voith ship simulator, you can steer around a course under realistic conditions and take part in our competition. The first three winners will receive attractive prizes.
