Becker Performance Package

The combination of a Becker Rudder and Becker Mewis Duct® or Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted (formerly known as the Becker Twisted Fin®) 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.

Celebrating Ten Years Becker Mewis Duct®

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.

  • Container feeders
  • Container liners
  • Tankers
  • Shuttle tankers
  • LNG/LPG carriers
