Shaft drive

OCEANVOLT shaft drive motors

Oceanvolt offers a range of Shaft Drive motor systems to provide propulsion and hydro generation for vessels that require mid-ship motor placement.

Oceanvolt Shaft Drive systems offer a silent, vibration-free propulsion solution that is easy to install, requires minimal cabling and is maintenance free.

AXC Series

Available Q3 2017

Oceanvolt AXC series is specially designed for heavy duty commercial and charter use.  There are no serviceable parts, no water cooling systems (keel cooling is standard) and system redundancies for safety.

The AXC series of shaft drive motor systems can be stacked to achieve higher power. The systems work with a nominal system voltage of 48VDC even when offering more than 20kW of power. In the AXC solution each individual 10kW motor (up to 4) is driven by their own motor controller which is integrated in the motor casing. This allows the electrical current in individual motors and controllers to stay relatively low even in high power (4x10kW) installations.
