C.I.MAR.E. ST. LAWRENCE BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR
DATE: TUESDAY, October 12th, 2021
TIME: 12:00 Eastern (8:00 Pacific, 13:00 Atlantic, 13:30 NFLD)
Wartsila EEXI Engine Power Limitation Energy Efficiency Technology
Founded in 1946 by Willi Becker, Becker Marine Systems (BMS) has become the market leader for high- efficiency maneuvering systems and energy-saving devices for all types of vessels.
With the current introduction of the EEXI and CII in context, an overview of the Becker Marine Systems (BMS) relevant product portfolio is given.
Firstly, a brief insight into rudder theory and a comparison of different rudder types (in terms of efficiency vs. maneuverability) will be given, with a focus on twisted rudders with bulb.
Secondly, the energy-saving device Becker Mewis Duct® and its natural development, the Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted (formerly known as Becker Twisted Fin®), will be presented. With its flexible design approach, the Mewis Duct family works by creating a thrust, reducing the vessel drag by minimizing separation, and improving the propeller efficiency by introducing a pre-swirl. These effects combine to produce effective power reductions for all types of vessels.
With today’s emphasis on efficient performance, optimization of both rudders and ESDs rely heavily on the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. Use of CFD is now core to the design and development of BMS products, and some examples that illustrate how it is used for rudder and ESD optimization will be given.
