A-Pods Z-Drive Transverse Thruster
Our patented and compact A-Pod PG is the first electrically driven propulsion system with an integrated electric motor, hollow drive shaft and planetary gearbox. The extended propeller shaft runs through the whole POD housing. Due to the reduction ratio of the planetary gearbox, the propeller always runs at its most economical speed, resulting in optimal performance in terms of efficiency and thrust.

Scope of application
FP transverse thrusters are used on ships with sufficient draft to guarantee proper functioning. The distance measured from the waterline in the lightest seagoing conditions to the centre of the tunnel should be about one to one and a half times the diameter of the tunnel.
