Ship Marine L-drive Electrical Azimuth Thruster Or Bow Thruster:
With an electrical driven rudder propeller the e-motor can be placed on the side of the top gear drive (Z-drive type), or at the top of the gear drive (L-drive type).
Interest in diesel electric and LNG electric propulsion has grown in immensely lately, with a view to fuel economy and reduced emissions. These are mostly ships with (diesel) electric propulsion and multiple generator sets on-board, which together provide the full electric propulsion power supply. When full power is not needed a few generators can be switched off to reduce fuel consumption.
