SCHOTTEL Lays Focus on Sustainability with New SRE EcoPeller

SCHOTTEL_SRE 340_Credit_SCHOTTELShip owners are facing major ecological and economical challenges to meet the ever stricter requirements of emission quotas and environmental regulations. At the same time, the technical requirements of customers, such as maximum overall efficiency, excellent course keeping stability and exact positioning in DP operation, are significantly influencing shipbuilding.

SCHOTTEL is meeting these developments with a highly efficient and ecologically clean propulsion system developed primarily for open sea and coastal operating conditions: the SCHOTTEL Rudder EcoPeller (SRE®, EcoPeller®). The brand-new thruster has already been ordered for eight ferries to be built for two of Norway’s leading ferry lines.
