    The Right Propulsion System for Every Situation

    Walk-to-work offshore vessel Wagenborg

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

    Propulsion system technology is key to operate vessels efficiently and with a high degree of safety. Matching the propulsion system to the vessel design is equally important. With more than 90 years of experience, Voith provides Propulsion systems tailored to the application.

    The Voith propulsion system portfolio

    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.
