Steering Gear

Mariner delivers well proven, robust, easily operable, easy servicing, 2 cylinder ram type steering gears. It is a compact design gear having 2 hydraulic tanks, 2 electric motors, 2 hydraulic pumps, 2 cylinders, all hydraulic fittings and piping as well as tiller and the carrier bearing all installed on the steering gear.

There is no need of any external hydraulic piping work on the ship structure, with this design the shipyard only needs to do the electrical cable connections to the mounted electric motors. When we deliver rudder and steering gears in packed form we make the rudder trunk top part as a ready machined steering gear forward foundation which is always well accepted by the shipyards.
