Marine propulsion projects imply multiple fields of technology, the contribution of international partners, sometimes complicated financing, and respect of deadlines, which must fit into the schedule of the shipyard.
Hydrodynamics and propeller performance calculations, hydraulics and mechanics.
Electronic controls and servo systems
Forge shopfloor and foundry shop for large parts (propeller shaft, blades, etc.)
The transmission, gear calculations, power take-off drives, shaft seals, elastic couplings, etc. are still further parameters to be taken into consideration.
Such projects require studies up to the actual installation, with the following goals:
