A unique permanent magnet propulsion motor with integrated pitch and thrust mechanism for CPP applications
Thorque™ is available in single screw and twin screw configurations.
- High efficiency
- Compact design
- Reduced emissions
- Robust construction
Thorque™ is also available in fixed pitch configurations.
Thorque™ is patent protected.
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.
Thorque™ with VFD
Asynchronous Motor + Mechanical Gear + VFD
In vessels with electric power generated from diesel fuel oil, the efficiency of the Thorque™ allows for reduced fuel oil consumptions and thereby reduced emissions to air. Thorque™ propulsion system meets requirements for Clean Design and Green shipping.
High power density
The high torque/power density in Thorque™ allows for a compact configuration with great arrangement flexibility and better utilisation of the vessel. The high power density enables an immense reaction force and acceleration from zero rpm.
Thorque™ is a new concept in a combination of well-known and proven technologies carefully selected from the permanent magnet (PM) motor and gearbox industries.
Reliable conventional CP propeller and shaft line directly connected to the Thorque™ with integrated thrust and pitch mechanisms – makes this a unique propulsion system.
Each Thorque™ is designed to meet the requirements of the specific vessel with regard to power/rpm and class society regulations. Thorque™ is normally designed for a lifetime of 30 years.
The MS Multi Green of FSV Group is the first vessel in operation with a Thorque™ and CP Propulsion system.
