Dry Pod Housing - Unlike conventional Z-drives which are flooded with many gallons of gear oil, the T-pod has a dry pod housing so there is no risk of oil leakage to the environment.
No Spiral Bevel Gears and Associated Shafts and Bearings - Resulting in greater power efficiency, quieter operation, less vibration, less weight and less maintenance.
Double Sealing Arrangement - High integrity mechanical seal with leak detection system.
Integrated Electric Motor - Integrated high speed permanent magnet electric motor. Low weight, high efficiency and very compact.
Long ‘flexible’ propeller shaft - A long propeller shaft is perfect for absorbing any shock load coming from the propeller. It has low inertia which results in higher durability.
Power Range - The T-Pod is available in a power range from 90 kW up to 2500 kW, and offered with either open propeller or in a nozzle.
