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.
