Thorque™ is a unique permanent magnet (PM) propulsion motor with integrated pitch and thrust mechanism for CPP applications. It is the most efficient motor for converting electric power into propulsion power – noiselessly. The high power density enables an immense reaction force and acceleration from zero rpm.
Thorque™ is available in single screw and twin screw configurations, where twin screw contra rotating propulsion (CRP) adds another 20% and more efficiency. Thorque™ is also available in fixed pitch configurations. Thorque™ combines
- High efficiency
- High torque from zero rpm
- Compact design
- Reduced emissions
- Robust construction
Thorque™ is the most efficient motor for converting electric power into propulsion power, either the power comes from a power storage or an electric power production unit.
Thorque™ is the ideal propulsion system for vessels with a wide and varied range in propulsion power. Thorque™ keeps high efficiency in the entire speed range, which results in huge differences in efficiency in lower speed compared to electric systems with gearbox and asynchronous electric motors.
