SCHOTTEL thrusters for Europe’s most state-of-the-art fireboat “Branddirektor Westphal”
The “Branddirektor Westphal”, Europe’s most state-of-the-art fireboat, is fitted with SCHOTTEL thrusters: two SCHOTTEL Rudderpropellers and two SCHOTTEL Transverse Thrusters enable maximum manoeuvrability and optimum efficiency. The special vessel, operated by Flotte Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hamburg Port Authority (HPA), and built at the Fassmer shipyard in Lower Saxony, is scheduled to enter service in the Port of Hamburg shortly.
Fassmer and SCHOTTEL are united by a long-standing partnership. “We have worked closely with SCHOTTEL for many years now. On the basis of our positive experiences, with both reliable products and competent service, we once again opted for SCHOTTEL,” says Thomas Sass, Head of Shipbuilding Sales at Fassmer.
