Set Spare 6-Blade Propeller
This 6 bladed propeller is suitable as replacement for the Bow125/130/160 bow thrusters separately. Working in close collaboration with the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN), the world-famous hydrodynamic laboratory, Vetus has optimized the performance of its thrusters. This has been achieved by utilizing a unique propeller blade profile, which creates little or no cavitation. As cavitation produces unwanted noise, this new blade design offers a major reduction in the operating sound levels for Vetus bow thrusters. Moreover, the application of this new propeller has reduced the current consumption by up to 10%.
