Becker Performance Package

The combination of a Becker Rudder and Becker Mewis Duct® or Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted enables maximum possible energy savings in front of and behind the propeller. Both products are available from a single company and are thus perfectly harmonised via Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations for optimised manoeuvring and maximum energy savings.

The total performance improvement is based on two parts, the active part related to the improvement of flow towards the propeller, the reduction of losses, the pre-swirl and the passive part for minimising drag and improving course stability.

Becker Marine Systems constantly reviews the best combinations of a Becker Mewis Duct® or Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted with a rudder system such as the Becker Flap, Becker Twist or Becker Schilling® Rudder, resulting in the best combination of manoeuvrability and efficiency.

 

Combined energy savings.

With the maximum energy savings brought about by the Becker Rudder and a Becker Mewis Duct® or Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted, the BPP is applicable to almost every hull form as well as virtually every propeller.

With the BPP clients such as shipyards, ship designers and ship owners/managers have the opportunity to apply a tailor-made and advanced energy-saving solution in order to achieve significant efficiency gains for a given hull form and given propeller designs and by doing so close a gap in required ship speed or achieve a specific required power savings.
