Voith Linear Jet
High efficiency at all speeds: The Voith Linear Jet
Thanks to its constantly high efficiency, the Voith Linear Jet offers an excellent solution especially for ships with a mixed-use profile ranging between slow and fast speeds. Due to its design, the propulsion system is also distinguished by robustness, low noise emissions and ease of maintenance.
Wide range of applications
Voith provides propulsion systems tailored to a wide range of applications
Reliable, Silent, Efficient
The constantly high efficiency over the entire range of operation makes the compact propulsion concept interesting primarily for wind farm support vessels, yachts, high-speed ferries and comparable applications with a mixed-use profile ranging between slow cruising speed and running at speeds ranging from 25 to 40 knots.
Additional advantages of the VLJ are a shallower draft and a high bollard pull, making it an alternative to propellers or water jets.
