A crucial, yet often overlooked, component that ensures the safe navigation of a vessel is the steering system. The steering gear is indispensable, whether it’s for a tug boat, supply vessel, cargo ship, state-of-the-art cruise liner or military vessel. Its primary function is to control the direction of the ship.
Reliability is paramount when it comes to considering a steering gear system. At SIT, we understand the importance of a quality product which can be fully compliant with all applicable customer, military, and industry standards including ABS and USCG requirements.
