With the slogan “Proven technology has a new name”, SCHOTTEL is introducing new type designations starting 1 September 2016. For more consistency, the company will replace the current product names that have developed over the last 65 years after the invention of the Rudderpropeller. A new, clear nomenclature will ease orientation among the variety of products. However, the proven products remain the same.
For all SRP, STP, SCD and SRE propulsion units, the SRP or STP abbreviation will be followed by a three digits sequential number. This will allow classification of the various types within the series. For example, the former SRP 1515 will now be referred to as SRP 460. All propulsion units with comparable input power follow this system: STP 460, SRE 460 and SCD 460, the number not being related to performance. The former SRP 4000 will be renamed SRP 510 and the former SCD 4000 will also be given the digits 510. All other products will retain their familiar names.
SCHOTTEL invented the Rudderpropeller (SRP) over 65 years ago. Ever since, the SRP has stood for quality, robustness and a manoeuvrability that was unprecedented at the time. The Rudderpropeller product range continued to grow. Further drives based on the SRP principle were added like the STP or SCD.
