Since 2002 Bosch Rexroth has been developing controls for ships with Voith Schneider propulsions. In addition to the electronic remote control, hydraulic components are applied to adjust the VSP control shaft. Work boats such as platform supply vessels, tug boats, cable and buoy laying vessels as well as double ended ferries are equipped with this special type of propulsion system which combines excellent maneuverability with highest safety and availability.

Steering Technology

Using a joystick, the operator sets the amount and direction of the thrust. The control generates signals to actuate the hydraulic cylinders and valves which adjust the longitudinal and transverse thrust of the Voith Schneider propeller.
