Tees White Gill Thrusters provide full continuous thrust through 360 degrees to move a vessel in any desired direction, independently of ship speed. The bow or stern thrusters can be used as a completely independent means of propulsion and can be powered by any engine or electric motor of the required capacity. Often known as a Gill Jet, our design could also be reffered to as pump jet or flush mounted azimuth thruster.
All units are manufactured to the Survey Society standard and we can liase with third parties as required (e.g. ABS Lloyds). The units consist of an axial flow pump mounted within the hull with only two moving elements - a bronze pump rotor and a cast rotatable vaned discharged deflector. This proven design ensures long life, trouble free operation and ease of maintenance.
Rugged construction and dependable, trouble free operation make the Tees White Gill Thruster ideally suited for all types of ocean going and coastal vessels, harbour craft and river boats. Providing precise maneuverability, our thrusters are also ideally suited to all dynamic positioning (DP) vessels.Tweet
