MHI orders Becker Twist Rudders for two Japanese ferries
9th May 2018: Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has ordered complete propulsion systems from Nakashima Propeller for two domestic ferries. As part of this package Becker Marine Systems will deliver two Becker Twist Rudders (highly efficient twisted full-spade rudders with twisted leading edge) for each vessel. The rudders are specially designed for fast twin-screw ferries operating with a max. speed of around 25 kn. Once again, the domestic owner Hankyu Ferry selected this proven solution due to the good experience they made with recently built vessels with similar propulsion systems.
