Rolls-Royce unveiled at Nor-shipping on 3 June an azimuth thruster featuring permanent-magnet (PM) technology.

The group's PM technology portfolio includes tunnel thrusters and a newly developed winch.

Sea trials to evaluate the new thruster's energy-saving potential took place on board Trondheim-based Gunnerus, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology's (NTNU's) research ship.
