Introduction to Surface Drive

Thruster Surface Drive 01

This is the first domestic surface drive developed by HIM Marine. HIM Marine’s surface drive is optimized for the marine environmental conditions of the Korean peninsula to show the best performance in any terrain. It maximizes the power performance of the ship by minimizing power loss and significantly improves the fuel consumption rate of the engine. It has a built-in “tilt device” patented by the company that enables optimal vessel operation, and the latest coating technology is applied to prevent corrosion by seawater.

Himmarine’s drive system is optimized for the tidal difference, which is one of the characteristics of the domestic ocean, and has a design that maintains the optimal tilt angle to show optimal performance in any conditions.

Himmarine’s surface drive has excellent durability by applying production technology optimized for seawater corrosion, making it possible to minimize after-sales service costs.

Among marine accidents in Korea, the propeller of the drive and the net are tangled, and accidents occur frequently. However, due to the design characteristics of Himmarine’s drive, the stability of the drive propeller is secured under any operating conditions.
