Development of the electromechanical solutions for ship propulsion and control.

This project, funded by Italian government and European Structural Funds, lead by CNR, is devoted to perform a detailed analysis of technical innovative solutions to be introduced to drive bow thrusters and stabilizing fin or rudder replacing the conventional oleo dynamic solutions.

NITEL will define and compare possible innovative electrical drives, including torque motors, to be directly connected to the mechanical loads. Fincantieri CNR and some SMEs will develop the prototype and will perform the laboratory tests and sea trials.
