Wesmar thruster given ABS approval

Wesmar’s V2-20NS Vortex dual-prop, stainless-steel bow thruster was given ABS approval for dynamic positioning applications (DP1).

The Woodinville, Wash.-based company said it anticipates similar approval soon for its V2-26 and V2-36 systems, which operate on vessels up to 350 hp.

The ABS rating clears Wesmar thrusters for use on ABS DP1 classed vessels and widens the scope of business with newly constructed offshore supply and crew boats for the offshore oil industry in the post-Katrina U.S. Gulf Coast.

Wesmar’s product line includes thrusters and sonar equipment for both recreational and commercial marine applications.
