Hydraulic Marine Systems' Azimuth Style Hydraulic Conversion Kits are designed to cost effectively connect to your existing engine and/or Hydraulic systems to self-propel your Tug/Vessel. Kits are custom tailored to fit your application and needs. Sizes range from 100hp/75kw to 300hp/224kw and can include a complete package or just partial components to complete your existing system. Our Thru-Hull mounted, Azimuth style Thrusters have 3 Steering options including 90° ram cylinder style, 180° gear to gear or 360° continuous azimuth style. available options include Plug-n-Play Pilot House Controls, Hand-held Wireless Radio Remote Controls, Position indicating systems as well as pressure, temperature and propeller speed indicators.

The basic packages include a hydraulic pump, hydraulic reservoir with filtration, an oil cooler, a set of pump controls for the pilot house (with cable harness), a fixed outboard mounting bracket or a Thru-hull mounting bracket and a lower drive assembly (Hydraulic Thruster) with propeller and protective guard.

These are all basic kits. We do have additional options available that can be added to the systems, including Pilot House Electronic Display Panels with graphic position displays, Temperature and pressure indicators, Propeller Speed (rpms) indicators, wireless radio remote control transmitters as well as optional outboard Tilt-able mounting frames that allow the thrusters to be tilted/trimmed up out of the water for maintenance and/or stowage. 

Each package can be modified to suit your needs, depending on the application and duty cycle. For instance, if the unit is moving a platform around on the jobsite, the electric cooling fan would be sufficient, but if the unit is going to be in a continuous duty cycle (traveling distances) the system would require additional cooling.

If you already have hydraulics available onboard, we can modify the package to supply only the components you need.

HMS' Kits are custom fabricated to order and typically require 90 days to complete. For additional details, email us or call for a custom quote to fit your needs.
