Russian translation:силовая установка
Explanation:
I agree with Sergey's proposal that the term equivalent you are looking for is "engine/propuslion type/system". The best fit I found was not from a dictionary, but from one of the instructors from my staff (who served for 30 years in the Russian Navy). According to this walking словарь, either

силовая установка - propulsion system
or just the simplest - двигатель - engine.

Grebnaya ustanovka


Explanation:
Stylus Naval dict. provides "gribnaya ustanovka" for propulsion, e.g.:
propulsion control - upravleniye gribnoi ustanovkoi,
propulsion and electrical operating station- post upravleniya gribnoi i elektroenergeticheskoi ustanovkami
etc.
Dvigatel' will be engine, or motor, not propulsion, e.g.:
main propulsion engine — главный двигатель
main propulsion motor — гребной электродвигатель (lingvo 6.0)
