The patented Thrustmaster Portable Dynamic Positioning Systems (PDPS) are designed for maneuvering and station-keeping of offshore support vessels. They are available in power ratings up to 2,000 SHP (1.491 MW) per thruster. These thrusters use fixed pitch propellers and are directly driven by a podded hydraulic motors. The skid mounted water cooled diesel-hydraulic power units provide motive power to the thrusters. The self-contained control van has all required DP control systems as well as required environmental and positioning sensor suites.
