Mekanord gearbox range covers a power range from 200 KW to 10000 KW and includes specialties such as:

  • 2-step gearboxes making reduction ratios above 10:1 possible
  • Twin-in and single-out gearboxes
  • Gearboxes with horizontal offset
  • Co-axial gearboxes
  • Compact gearboxes for high speed vessels
  • Gearboxes with extra-long servo stroke to obtain feathering propeller
  • Step-up front gearboxes for PTO applications


Typical Applications: Supply vessels, Tugs, Ferries, Cargo vessels, Yachts, Trawlers and other vessels with varying load and work conditions.

Mekanord is always able to offer customized marine transmission solutions for individual sophisticated customers’ needs.

Controllable Pitch Propulsion System (CPP) ?? Working Principles

Mekanord gearboxes are suitable for a wide range of marine propulsion systems where controllable pitch propeller is required. The controllable pitch propulsion system can be designed for either mechanical or hydraulic operation. The operation of variable pitch propellers can be realized under all load conditions and propeller is adjusted quickly and smoothly from full ahead to full astern by the use of state-of-the-art technology.

CPP System Marine Gearbox Features

  • Completely integrated hydraulic servo system for pitch control which ensures easy installation, operation and maintenance.
  • Compact design
  • High reduction ratios available allowing large diameter, slow rotating propellers with high efficiency resulting in higher thrust and lower fuel consumption
  • Up to 3 PTO’s available per gearbox - each with independent hydraulic clutch if required
  • PTI for hybrid systems
  • Customized gear ratios and PTO/PTI design
  • Either mechanical or hydraulic operation of the propeller pitch
  • Approvals according to latest rules from classification societies
