Twin Fin Propulsion System

For vessels working in tough conditions, such as offshore supply vessels in arctic seas, current propulsion alternatives have their drawbacks. Azimuth thrusters face reliability and downtime issues whereas the more reliable single-screw propulsion takes up space in the hull and is difficult to retrofit. Now, primarily for diesel-electric new builds and retrofits, there is a fresh opportunity: Twin Fin propulsion.

TWIN FIN ADVANTAGES:

  • Increased thrust and efficiency
  • Reduced maintenance and easy access for service
  • No need to dry dock in case of repairs
  • Increased reliability and flexibility
  • Reduced fuel consumption and green concept
  • Increased cargo space and deadweight
  • Well-proven for safety in the arctic
  • Easy to retrofit with very short yard stay
