Home' Baird Maritime : September 2011 Contents Formed in 1908 in the south of Norway,
it was not until the mid-1980s, that
Sleipner Motor decided to focus on
Since then, its Side-Power thrusters
brand has grown steadily, particularly
within the small leisure and commercial
boat market, for vessels up to
approximately 30 metres.
In the last ten years or so, Sleipner has
expanded its strategy, supplying ever more
powerful hydraulic thrusters for the
semi-custom and bespoke superyacht and
commercial markets. It is for the 30-45
metre market that the company has
developed two new large thrusters: the
SH1000 and the SH1400.
The SH1000 delivers 1,000 kilograms of
thrust in a 513-milimetre inside diameter
tunnel, while the SH1400 delivers 1,400
kilograms of thrust in a 610-milimetre
inside diameter tunnel. Both models are
fitted with counter-rotating bronze Q-prop
five-blade 'skew' propellers, and are
controlled by Sleipner's S-link 'intelligent'
control system. They can be delivered in
two versions; either hydraulically powered
or via AC electric motor.
Sleipner has also recognised a gap in the
30-45 metre market for stabilisers,
previously largely confined to large
passenger ships and superyachts.
Side-Power stabilisers feature an up-to-date
Intelligent Controller, which combines
predictive algorithms with real-time sensor
adjustment to calculate the self-adjusting
principles of the stabilisers. Made from
vacuum infused vinylester, moulded over a
pre-shaped core with a steel structure to
secure the shaft, Side-Power stabilisers are
driven by dual cylinders, for improved
strength, balance and load-strain.
In addition, Sleipner has developed a
superyacht-specific Side-Power steering
system for the wider international market.
Side-Power superyacht steering systems
can be operated from a traditional helm
or by joystick, and are ready for

PPG Protective and
Marine Coatings launches
PPG Protective and Marine Coatings has
launched Sigmadur One, a single-pack
urethane polyester finish coat designed
for onboard maintenance applications.
Instead of a typical two-pack finish,
Sigmadur One comes in one pack, so
no mixing is required, thereby reducing
mistakes during application, saving
time and leading to a faster return to
service. The new product has been
developed for durable performance, ease
of use for onboard maintenance and good
The coating is suitable for decks, deck
fittings and superstructures, and can be
applied on virtually all ship types. It is
compatible with existing aged coatings,
easy to apply and quick drying. Sigmadur
One offers a high-gloss finish providing
good colour and gloss retention, and
comes in an extensive range of colours.
PPG's Sigma Colour Network centres can
be found in all key ports along the main
trading routes, with a modern colour
identification computer and an advanced
blending process to ensures that all tinted
coatings match the colour standards of any
corporate livery or owner preferences. The
system is also supported by the Sigmacare
onboard maintenance crew support package.
