High Efficiency at all speeds: The Voith Linear Jet
A New Propulsion Standard.
Thanks to its constantly high efficiency, the Voith Linear Jet offers an excellent solution especially for ships with a mixed use profile ranging between slow and fast speeds. Due to its design, the propulsion system is also distinguished by robustness, low noise emissions and ease of maintenance.
The Voith Linear Jet (VLJ) combines the best properties of propellers with the best properties of waterjets. Low installation complexity, low sensitivity to marine growth, sustained high efficiency across the vessel’s speed range and high bollard pull are taken from the propeller side. Reduced vessel draft, the ability to reach high speeds with high effi ciency and low noise and vibration levels are taken from the waterjet side.
Voith provides propulsion systems tailored to a wide range of applications:
- Ferries and Passenger Ships
- Offshore Oil and Gas
