This week the electric Z-drives (VZ-200E) were placed in the new ferry IJveer 65 of GVB B.V. Amsterdam. The thruster foundation is designed in such a way that it fits perfectly with the hull of the ship. An important starting point in the design for this refit project was the interchangeability; the custom made Veth Z-drives therefore fit seamlessly into the ship's foundation of the previous thruster manufacturer.
Veth Propulsion by Twin Disc, Inc. already supplied the same electric Z-drives to the IJveer 64. This hybrid ship is already sailing on the IJ in Amsterdam.
