"SHIPHANDLING WITH AZIMUTHING PODDED PROPULSORS"
09 February 2015 - 10:03

Azimuth thrusters is a configuration of marine propellers placed in pods that can be rotated to any horizontal angle (azimuth), making a rudder unnecessary. These give ships better maneuverability than a fixed propeller and rudder system. Azimuthing podded propulsors has been popular on modern passenger ships and purpose built ships as well as modern tugboats and working boats. However, a book on the shiphandling of such vessels was missing so far. 
Capt. Alper Tunga Anıker is a maritime pilot serving in the Gulf of Izmit in Turkey. His newly published book, "Shiphandling with Azimuthing Podded Propulsors" bridges a gap in the maritime publications on shiphandling.    
The book has been published by DEKAŞ; the pilotage company authorized to serve in the Izmit Gulf.
