Schottel to provide propulsion for new Oceanwide Expeditions ship
Oceanwide Expeditions
Janossius is the second vessel to be ordered from Brodosplit by Oceanwide Expeditions

Schottel has been selected to provide a propulsion package for Oceanwide Expeditions’ new ship, Janssonius. The new vessel is the second that the cruise line has ordered from Croatian shipyard Brodosplit.

The main propulsion system will include a Schottel controllable pitch propeller type SCP 109 4-XG. The SCP will be ice-strengthened according to Polar Class 6. One Schottel transverse thruster type STT 1 CP and one transverse thruster type STT 2 CP at the stern will provide manoeuvrability. The propulsion system will be powered by two diesel engines delivering 4,260 kilowatts, enabling a service speed of up to 15 knots. A twin-in single-out gearbox will enable the main propulsion units achieve propeller speeds of 160 rotations per minute.

Janssonius and her sister ship Hondius are the first vessels to be built according to the latest Lloyd’s Register requirements for Polar Class 6 vessels. The ship, named after Dutch cartographer Jan Janssonius, will be 107 metres long and be able to accommodate 196 passengers in 85 cabins.

The new vessel is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2021.
