To provide maritime professionals with a clear understanding of a wide variety of propulsion systems. The module includes both lectures and practical exercises.

Topics include:

  • Introduction propulsion systems
  • Basic hydrodynamics
  • Fixed pitch propellers
  • Controllable pitch propellers
  • Steerable thrusters
  • Water jets
  • Voith Schneider propellers
  • Transverse thrusters
  • Propulsion system application 

Target group and lecturers

This module is of interest to designers, engineers and sales engineers working with system integrators, engine transmission and propulsor manufacturers/representatives, electrical engineering firms, shipyards, navies, design offices and ship owners. Netherlands Maritime Technology organises the module ‘Marine Propulsors Characteristics’ in close cooperation with Wärtsilä Propulsion Netherlands BV. The trainers are Ir. Jasper Grevink of Wärtsilä Propulsion Netherlands BV and ing. Edwin Bonsen of Voith Turbo BV.

Thanks to its international setting, the course offers companies in the maritime cluster an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge and to network with colleagues, clients and/or suppliers. This will enable them to position their company even better as a co-maker in the shipbuilding process.

Between 12 and 20 participants per training.
