J.M. Voith SE & Co. KG

Voith is established in the maritime industry since the early 1920s with its unique Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP). Today, particularly specialized offshore vessels and tugs benefit from the VSP through precise maneuvering, even under adverse conditions. With the electric Voith Schneider Propeller (eVSP) the company also took an important step towards the electrification of the drive train in marine applications to facilitate eco-friendly shipping and transportation. In recent years, Voith inspired the industry with further innovative developments as the Voith Inline Thruster (VIT) as well as the Voith Linear Jet (VLJ). Therefore, the company also took the technological lead in the fields of transverse thrusters and propulsion systems for fast vessels. The Marine Division is part of Voith Turbo GmbH & Co. KG.
