WESMAR "Get Home" Auxiliary Propulsion Unit

WESMAR’s unique new APU ‘Get Home’ Auxiliary Propulsion System has created tremendous excitement. Some of the enthusiasm is due to the fuel it saves and the speed at which it performs. The unique auxiliary drive system uses hydraulic power from the ship’s generator to drive the propeller shaft, should an engine failure occur.

The APU is a perfect fit with WESMAR’s other hydraulically driven products, and partners well with WESMAR’s Central Hydraulic Systems. It offers complete control from the helm and can be operated right from the bridge by simply turning the key and using the proportional joystick for forward and aft propulsion. Once the system is engaged with the key lock at the helm, it is activated and you are immediately in control and underway. No need to visit an engine room at all.
