Planned periodic maintenance is essential to ensure the proper functioning of the Bow Thrusters

Checks to ensure the proper functioning of the bow thrusters:

  • Isolation
  • Environment humidity
  • Bearing check
  • Hydraulic oil check
  • Electrical system check
  • Coupling

When performed according to a maintenance schedule, these operations offer advantages such as:

  • Better low speed manoeuvrability of the vessel
  • Safety of the vessel during docking in poor weather conditions
  • Cost savings due to a reduction in the time spent in ports and decreased use of tugboats


Eligroup can provide planned maintenance programmes for all types of thruster
