Special ships, tugboats, cable laying ships, and ferries are equipped with rudder-propeller drivers in order to improve manoeuvrability.
Function: These rudder-propeller drives rotate a full 360° so that a thrust can occur in any direction. In a multi-drive system, a satellite navigation system and a computer can be used to achieve a synchronized and independent regulation, which can exactly postion the ship even in heavy seas.
