Azipod® gearless propulsors

The driving force behind safe, efficient and sustainable operations

Azipod® propulsion is a gearless steerable propulsion system where the electric drive motor is in a submerged pod outside the ship hull. Launched in 1990, Azipod® technology marked a new era in ship propulsion. Since then, ABB’s Azipod propulsion system has inspired naval architects to create more efficient and sustainable vessel designs. Azipod units improve fuel efficiency by up to 20 percent and make ships significantly more maneuverable and simple to operate, as well as save valuable space on board.
