CUSTOM DESIGNED SHIP PROPELLERS UP TO 18 t
VICUSdt offers a customized service for propellers, including design, manufacturing and technical support. Our engineers have many years of experience in propeller design, manufacture and supply complete propulsion package, including shaft lines, stern tubes and rudders.
The propeller works in the wake of the ship, where normally there is a turbulent flow and the water speed that arrives at the propeller is not usually uniform, so the angle of attack varies during a revolution for the different blades’ sections. This is why the wake adapted design is essential to obtain a suitable performance.
VICUS PROPELLERS are suitable for any kind of vessel, including yachts, ferries, fishing vessel, oceanographic and seismic vessels. VICUSdt ensures that propellers comply with requirements and specifications for speed, low noise or vibration, geometric and hydrodynamic limitations.
Small improvements in the propeller efficiency can provide important fuel savings in the ship operation.
In the foundry, we have all the necessary equipment to manufacture FFP propellers up to a maximum of 10 tons in weight.
