The Side-Power EX70C External Thruster
Side-Power‘s EX series of external thrusters can be installed in most types of boats between 6 and 15 metres regardless of hull form, hull material, propulsion and depth. These pod thrusters are an excellent choice where a tunnel thruster cannot be fitted, or as an extremely compact stern thruster. As they are easy to fit they are especially good for retrofitting.
The flexible mounting at the extreme bow of the boat hull allows a deeper position underwater which creates an optimal leverage compared to conventional thrusters.
Benefits of the Side-Power EX Series
Hydrodynamic shape, very short flow-channel and ideal placement reduce the water resistance to a fraction compared to conventional systems. There is no perceptible loss of speed.
Only requires the drilling of only three small holes to assemble, which are sealed tightly with a special rubber sealant. No fibreglass work is necessary.
Minimal Noise Emission
About 80 % noise reduction is obtained by the external placement of the engine.
The external placement of the unit results in more efficient water cooling, and allows much longer duration per cycle of the unit than with traditional bow and stern thrusters.
The complete drive unit is very compact and placed externally, saving valuable boat space. Only the operating and control elements, as well as the power supply, remain inside the boat.
Optimal efficiency results from a shorter transverse channel and ideal leverage which is created by deeper and more distant positioning away from the pivot point. Typically giving up to 40 % higher efficiency than with conventional systems.
Every component included in the EX series is carefully choosen to meet the highest quality standards. The EX series is produced at ther ISO-certified factory in Norway.
The EX Compact Thruster Series
The EX Compact series is specifically designed for tail installation on power boats and is the solution for vertical mounting at the transom. The basic technology is the same as in the other models of the EX Series, but the total length has been shortened by 110 mm – The result is a smaller thruster. with more flexible installation options.
