For more than 30 years, Thrustmaster of Texas, Inc. has been designing and manufacturing high quality marine propulsion equipment for vessels of all types. We have grown into a leading supplier of thrusters ranging from 75 kW to 8 MW, serving customers all over the world. Our headquarters in Houston, Texas consists of the largest thruster manufacturing factory in the world, with complete fabrication, machining, assembly and testing carried out at the facility. All thrusters are designed in-house by a complete engineering department for mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and electronic design.
Outdrive Propulsion Unit.
Thrustmaster’s propulsion outdrive units are self-contained thruster packages for main propulsion and positioning of barges, platforms and river craft. Conversion from a simple barge or unpowered vessel can be done in as little as a few hours to less than a week without modifying the hull. The hydraulic drive is especially suited for shallow, brown water applications where debris in the water or shallow bottoms can be a problem.
Thrustmaster manufacturers heavy duty azimuthing thrusters from 35 HP (26kW) to 10,750 HP (8.0MW) with fixed pitch propellers. The product lineup includes hydraulic and mechanical thrusters with direct engine drive, electric drive or hydraulic drive, and underwater mountable thrusters for the largest marine applications.
Portable Dynamic Positioning Systems.
Thrustmaster’s portable dynamic positioning system allows for an affordable and quick dock-side conversion of any vessel to DP-0 thru DP-3 per any of the major classification societies. PDPS can be mounted directly onto the deck or onto platforms attached to the side of the vessel.
Thrustmaster’s Axial flow waterjets from 100kW to 6,400 kW available in 15 model sizes to accomodate vessels from 6m to +60m with stainless steel jets supported by electronic controls.
Thrustmaster DOEN is a leading designer and manufacturer of waterjet propulsion systems focused on offering high-quality waterjet products that excel in the harsh operating conditions of the commercial and military marine market.
Thrustmaster DOEN Waterjets are specified by the most demanding operators throughout the world and we are dedicated to providing you with the best possible waterjet solutions for your vessel.
Thrustmaster’s tunnel thrusters are best equiped to perform docking, slow speed maneuvering, emergency steering and station keeping at zero or slow forward speed. In order to meet the numerous demands of the many vessel types used around the world Thrustmaster engineers design tunnel thrusters of aluminum or steel, and, with options regarding the kind of input power (prime movers) needed by the customer.
