Brunvoll Mar-El AS, part of the Brunvoll Group, is to exhibit at Seawork Asia for the first time. The Norwegian company offers a highly versatile range of control systems for propulsion and manoeuvring for nearly all types of vessel; from fast ferries and yachts to working boats, fishing boats, cargo vessel and offshore supply vessels.

Brunvoll Mar-El AS complete propulsion and manoeuvring systems include control of CPPs (controllable pitch propellers), steering gear, azimuth thrusters and tunnel thrusters.

March 2017 saw Brunvoll acquire Scana Propulsion, a supplier of gear and propeller systems with associated control systems, and its subsidiaries Scana Volda and Scana Mar-El.  The acquisition was positioned as a strategic move to increase Brunvoll’s product portfolio by delivering bigger projects and bigger packages in response to customer demand.

The subsequent amalgamation of the two complementary product ranges has both simplified and improved things for customers who were keen to have “one common responsibility for the package that covers propulsion, manoeuvring and positioning of the ship.”

Brunvoll has since fulfilled contracts on this basis in several vessel segments, including ropax vessels, special cargo tankers, fishery vessels and expedition cruise vessels.
