Side-Power Technology – Q-Prop
The new 5-blade special skew propellers are the result of years of development work and testing. They have been designed to reduce the noise level, while maintaining the efficiency of the old 4-blade Side-Power propellers. This new technology has increased the thrust on some thrusters by up to 5%.
Benefits of Side-Power Q-Prop Technology

- Expected noise reduction of 20-40%
- Will be delivered on all Side-Power models except models with 300mm and 385mm tunnel diameter
- Upgrade kits are available for most SP series thrusters with special adaptors
