Cat Propulsion Systems

It's different out there

LOTS OF UPTIME

Caterpillar Propulsion doesn’t supply world-leading controllable pitch propellers that are fully optimized to suit your exact requirements. And it’s not about azimuth thrusters or control systems either.

We supply heavy-duty performance, peace of mind, and uptime. Lots of uptime.

Because out there, that’s what makes the difference.

TWIN FIN PROPULSION SYSTEM

For vessels working in tough conditions, such as offshore supply vessels in arctic seas, current propulsion alternatives have their drawbacks. Azimuth thrusters face reliability and downtime issues whereas the more reliable single-screw propulsion takes up space in the hull and is difficult to retrofit. Now, primarily for diesel-electric new builds and retrofits, there is a fresh opportunity: Twin Fin propulsion.
