New Nautican Ocean Series IPUs for workboat applications
N Nautican continues to invest in R&D, finding new solutions for vessel owners to increase power and maneuverability, and reduce fuel use.
autican engineers the highest quality marine propulsion products and has been invested in groundbreaking research and development for more than 40 years. From pioneering the use of hydrofoils to increase barge efficiency, to the development of advanced nozzle profiles, and the integration of propulsion and maneuvering systems for increased hydrodynamic efficiency and responsiveness. Nautican continues to invest in research and development, finding new solutions for vessel owners to increase power and maneuverability, and reduce fuel use. Responding to customer feedback and high demand, Nautican recently completed the pre-engineering of
standardized components for a full range of Integrated Propulsion Units (IPUs), for propeller diameters from 64” to 156”. These pre-engineered components form the core of the new Nautican Ocean Series, and allow Nautican to rapidly design a complete system for each customer, based on these standardized components. The new Nautican Ocean Series is a complete line of fully engineered Nautican IPUs, designed for heavily loaded workboat applications. The Ocean Series IPU combines Nautican’s high efficiency nozzles, triple rudders, pre-swirl stators, and propellers. This high performance complete package incorporates Nautican’s years of experience with a wide
