English term or phrase: Steerable fan
Steerable fan for a marine thruster, in the factory and in use manoeuvring a ferry in a tight space
Francis
Italian translation:ventola orientabile
Explanation:
"ventola" = "fan" or "impeller"
If the fan actually moves the vehicle, than "governabile" is right, but if we are just moving the fan so it cools the correct part, than "orientabile" is a better solution.
