In an azimuth thruster the propeller rotates 360° around the vertical axis so the unit provides propulsion, steering and positioning thrust for superior maneuverability. Westrock provides a state-of-the art Turning, Locking, and Braking System component (TLB) to ensure your vessel is of the highest quality when it comes to performance and safety.
Anchor Handling & Mooring Winches
The brake is the heart of the mooring winch, since the brake secures the drum and consequently the mooring line at the shipboard end. Westrock has the industry knowledge to provide what you need, when you need it for your marine equipment.
A propulsion system with enough power to thrust a large vessel forward should also have the braking power to stop it. With Westrock supplied Air Start Clutches and Turning, Locking, and Braking (TLB) components, we guarantee you will have the performance and safety you need to control your marine vessels.
