Steerprop products

Steerprop Azimuth Propulsors combine proven technologies with a robust design and innovative solutions to provide superior reliability and efficiency. The propulsors are designed with a simplistic construction to minimize the amount of moving parts to further enhance their reliability and service life.

Examples of the innovative solutions used by Steerprop Azimuth Propulsors include Dual-End Contra-Rotating Propellers technology, HJ3 High Performance nozzles and seal systems that utilize pressurized air to eliminate even the most minute oil leaks.

A highly specialized company driven by customer satisfaction, Steerprop Ltd. provides high quality tailor-made azimuth propulsion solutions to the global maritime market. The adaptable core organization of experienced personnel works in close co-operation with a worldwide sales and service network.

In this way, Steerprop is able to provide the clients with expedite support both during the ship’s initial construction and commissioning as well as the throughout the vessel’s service life.

Over the last 15 years, Steerprop has delivered or been contracted to deliver over 720 azimuth propulsors worldwide, including the world’s most powerful and heavily ice-classed mechanical azimuth propulsors.

STEERPROP EQUIPPED VESSELS

SP10 - SP80

The SP10–SP80 product line is designed by combining proven technologies with the latest 3D-design software and calculation methods. The result is superior quality azimuth propulsors with an excellent lifetime economy.
140626 SP 20 D
  • Power range 500… 7000 kW
  • Z- or L-drive configuration
  • Open or ducted propeller
  • Modern electrical or hydraulic azimuthing
  • Direct diesel engine driven (up to 3500kW), or electric motor prime mover

SP10 CRP - SP45 CRP

The Steerprop dual-end Push-Pull Contra-Rotating Propellers solution offers several benefits:

  • Unsurpassed efficiency due to the hydrodynamic qualities of the underwater body especially at higher speeds of 25+ knots
  • Increased fuel savings – and as a result – lower emissions
  • Practically non-existant vibration and cavitation
  • Low levels of noise
  • Ability to optimize for a wide array of operational profiles without compromising efficiency due to load distribution in the underwater body
SP35CRP
  • Power range 500… 3600 kW
  • Z-drive configuration
  • Modern electrical or hydraulic azimuthing
  • Electric motor prime mover or direct diesel drive (with certain limitations)
  • Steerprop dual-end Push-Pull Contra-Rotating Propellers -technology

A natural continuation of the pushing CRP azimuth propulsor, the Steerprop Dual-End CRP was conceived as a way to evolve CRP technology past the limitations imposed by the pushing CRP solution. In over a decade of operating almost worldwide, the design has been verified in action.

The Steerprop Dual-End CRP has made the outstanding maneuverability of azimuth propulsor together with the excellent efficiency of CRP technology available for the global market.

SP CRP ECO

The Steerprop dual-end Push-Pull Contra-Rotating Propellers solution offers several benefits:

  • Unsurpassed efficiency due to the hydrodynamic qualities of the underwater body especially at higher speeds of 25+ knots
  • Increased fuel savings – and as a result – lower emissions
  • Practically non-existant vibration and cavitation
  • Low levels of noise
  • Ability to optimize for a wide array of operational profiles without compromising efficiency due to load distribution in the underwater body
CRP Cross Sectional
  • Power range 5000… 20000 kW
  • Z-drive configuration
  • Modern electrical or hydraulic azimuthing
  • Electric motor prime mover
  • Available with ice-classification in any ice-class
  • Steerprop Push-Pull Contra-Rotating Propellers -technology
  • Modern, truly emissions free shaft seal technology

An example of Steerprop Ltd.’s ongoing product development, the Steerprop CRP ECO is a further evolution of the innovative Steerprop Push-Pull CRP propulsor, bringing the outstanding maneuverability and unsurpassed efficiency of Steerprop CRP propulsors to even higher power ratings and speeds.

The CRP ECO combines the advanced hydrodynamic qualities that make the Steerprop CRP propulsors unsurpassedly efficient with the levels of redundancy and fail-safes that make the Steerprop ARC propulsors endurable and reliable. The end result is a supremely efficient and reliable high-power propulsor for applications that require high power and high reliability.

SP ARC

The Steerprop ARC Arctic Azimuth Propulsor line has been designed and built with multiple layers of redundancies and fail-safes for safe, reliable and efficient operations in the most extreme operating conditions on earth. These advanced propulsors combine icebreaking power with the reliability of mechanical construction and the accurate controls of modern automation technology.

Azimuth propulsors are a tool second to none in ice management operations. The ability to direct the vectored thrust from the propeller (ie, the slipstream) in full 360 degrees, the thrust itself can be used to widen fairways, blow ice ridges or free arctic offshore installations from the ice.

SP ARC
  • Power range 500… 16000 kW
  • Z-drive configuration
  • Open or ducted propeller available
  • Modern electrical or hydraulic azimuthing
  • Electric motor prime mover
  • Available in any ice-class

SP PULL

The more powerful azimuth propulsors of the Steerprop product line are based on the same technology as the smaller ones. By utilizing the latest design methods, it has been possible to extend the same mechanical simplicity and thus reliability into higher power ranges.

120302_SP60Pull.Final%20Color%20Output
  • Power range 4000… 7000 kW
  • Z- or L-drive configuration
  • Open or ducted propeller
  • Modern electrical or hydraulic azimuthing
  • Electric motor prime mover
