The Azipull combines the advantages of an azimuthing thruster offering high manoeuvrability, and a low drag,highly efficient propulsor, enabling high speeds. The flexibility of the unit is also enhanced by the fact that it is available in both CP and FP versions. The Azipull is delivered with remote control systems. Internally, it has a purely mechanical drive system based on well-proven technology using bevel gears at the top and bottom of the leg. Power is fed to the unit through a horizontal input shaft within the hull, and the unit incorporates its own steering motors for azimuthing.
