In September 2020, the three azimuth propulsion thrusters were installed in the cable-laying vessel Nexans Aurora.
The vessel is under construction at Ulstein Verft.
Each thruster has an effect of 3,200 kW and a diameter of 2,900 mm.
The thrusters are part of a major delivery from Brunvoll, which also includes two bow thrusters (3,100 kW), and a retractable azimuth unit of 3,000kW.
Parallell work tasks
Multiple operations are going on at the same time during a ship construction newbuild project such as the 'Nexans Aurora'. The photo below shows the heave of one of the two tensioners, a Maats Tech delivery. The vessel is also currently being painted.
