It is available as a full spade rudder with optional KSR (King Support Rudder). Combined with a steering gear which is suitable for higher rudder angles, the Becker Schilling® can be used for all kinds of vessels operating in DP mode. Due to its specific design, the Becker Schilling® has no wear and tear parts, which also minimises servicing and maintenance costs.
