Kumera Helseth has an excellent know-how on the power transmission unit for any sea-faring vessel. Our expertise include each individual aspect of the power transmission system. In-house manufacturing of propulsion gearboxes, propelles and control systems enables a reliable and long-term operating system.
Helseth Propulsion Solutions are proven to be highly efficient in a complete range of driveline setups. Based on our engineering capabilities and wide experience, we have developed powerful solutions together with vessel designers and owners within a wide range of setups
Application – Conventional Vessels
Conventional Vessels – operating at low and medium speed – is a wide group of vessels where Helseth Propulsion Solutions are well fitted. Since most of these vessels are operating in continuous duty, the fuel-economy and systems reliability are key requirements. For most workboats bollard pull will also be a important performance criteria.
Cargo Vessel, LOA 121,0 mtr.
Aquaculture Service Vessel, Catamaran, LOA 24,0 mtr.
Live Fish Carrier, LOA 84,6 mtr.
Fishing Vessel, LOA 28,0 mtr
Application – High Speed Vessels
For High Speed Vessels – normally operating above 25 knots speed – hydrodynamics becomes much more important for the optimization of the propulsion solution. In addition to the propeller design also design of brackets, rudders and propeller tunnel has to be optimized. Due to interaction with the hull design, we work closely with vessel designers for high speed applications to ensure the most efficient solution.
