You are aware of the fact that our maritime Caterpillar engines have had an indestructible reputation for decades now. But did you also know that we supply propulsion systems such as tunnel thrusters, steerable thrusters, controllable pitch propellers and operating systems by Berg Propulsion? This allows us to offer you a complete and optimized propulsion solution.
Available with both controllable and fixed-pitch propeller for maximum availability.
The Transverse Thruster is fitted with robust gearwheels, bearings and ship-adjusted blades. There are two configurations, the heavy version, suitable for DP (Dynamic Positioning) under full continuous use, and the lighter support version, suitable for manoeuvring in a harbour, for instance.
The Azimuth is a high-quality steerable thruster with a custom-controllable or fixed-pitch propeller. One unique quality of this Azimuth Thruster is a compact and integrated upper gearbox, which means installation and maintenance are considerably easier and you can use the available space more efficiently.
Customized controllable pitch propeller for maximum efficiency.
Globally, the Berg Propulsion Controllable Pitch Propellers have an excellent reputation for reliability. The propeller shaft system is fully optimized for performance in the roughest circumstances, yielding trust and maximum availability. Maximum performances are achieved by finding the most efficient solution in collaboration with the customer, taking into account sailing profile, hull design and other hydro-dynamic factors.
Reliable, efficient and low-energy
The Berg Twin Fin propulsion concept is an innovative solution that meets the strictest requirements for both conversions and new-build projects. An increase of uptime, more efficient fuel consumption and flexibility compared to conventional alternatives. Another advantage is extremely fast and simple installation + commissioning on board.
Intuitive control of propellers, thrusters and engines
The MPC800 control and monitoring system, especially designed according to the latest technology, is incredibly simple and pleasant to use. It gives the operator clear information and full control of the propellers, thrusters and engines. The MPC800 system is easy to configure for operation and interface with a wide range of additional systems.
Flexible and efficient
With the Berg Hybrid Propulsion System, Berg Propulsion offers the benefits of the flexibility of switching between the conventional diesel-mechanical system and, in some cases, the more efficient diesel-electric system. The result? Fuel savings, more efficient engines, reduced maintenance costs, maximum availability.
