Energy-Saving Devices

With a record of improving rudder efficiency as its core mission, Becker Marine Systems began development of a new energy-saving device intended to be better than anything else then available on the market.

Development began in 2008 and shortly thereafter the first Becker Mewis Duct® was produced and installed on an open hatch cargo carrier. The initial idea was to install the duct on tankers and bulkers, but due to its success in achieving average power savings of 6.5%, Becker was approached by the owners of other types of ships about ordering a Becker Mewis Duct®. Every contract includes a provision with a power-savings guarantee to be verified by a model test. If the model test does not demonstrate the level of agreed power savings, the owner may withdraw from the contract.

Then, in 2012 Becker was asked by the German owner of a container ship fleet to develop an energy-saving device for faster vessels such as container ships. This heralded the birth of the Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted (formerly known as the Becker Twisted Fin®).

Since that time Becker has been supplying the Becker Mewis Duct® and Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted to every major shipowner in the world. Becker has a very strong CFD team that custom designs Becker’s energy-saving devices for each specific hull/propeller configuration. This experience enables Becker to offer a complete performance package including a Becker energy-saving device and a Becker rudder, designed and optimised to achieve maximum efficiency combined with the highest level of manoeuvrability.
