Steering gear for hybrid patrol vessel
For the RPA 8 hybrid patrol vessel we build and delivered the hydraulic steering gear. It features two separated 50L oil tanks for the main and emergency steering system. The main hydraulic system is designed in a manner that the pump only delivers what’s required. This saves energy. The emergency system is designed so that you can even steer in a blackout situation.
