STX Heavy Industries and Schottel cooperate

The South Korean company STX Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. and Schottel GmbH, Spay, Germany, will, in the future, be cooperating in the area of large rudderpropeller systems for underwater installation, as used on drilling rigs, for example. Within the framework of a corresponding licence agreement, STX will manufacture Rudderpropellers covering a power range from 2,000 to 5,800 kW, while Schottel will supply the core components for these systems in the form of the L gearbox. The first STX-Schottel rudderpropellers are due for delivery in the second half of 2010.
