Azimuthing Underwater Mountable Thrusters
There are two alternative ways to connect the lifting wires: Connecting inside the ship to the thruster flange or externally to the lifting lugs on the thruster flange.
The former is typical on the drill ships and the latter on the semi-submersibles. All necessary plugs, blinds and domes are supplied with the thruster for underwater (de)mounting.
* Semi-submersible drilling
* Production vessels
