The event passenger vessel Rhein Star has successfully and reliably mastered its first season with overhauled propulsion units. Both main propulsion units, SCHOTTEL RudderPropellers, as well as the auxiliary propulsion unit, SCHOTTEL PumpJet, were overhauled at the nearest SCHOTTEL workshop after almost 20 years in operation and installed before the start of the season by the Stahlbau Müller shipyard based in Oberwinter, Germany. This increases the operational reliability and availability of the two overhauled SRP 200 (400 kW each) and the SPJ 22 (100 kW) to a maximum during the season. The Rhein Star is one of four event passenger ships of Rössler Linie. The 44-metre-long and nine-metre-wide ship was put into operation in 2003 and can accommodate up to 600 people.
