Becker Marine has recently won two orders covering delivery of 17 Becker Twist rudders for Chinese-built feeder ships.

The company says its proven and energy-efficient twist rudder system with rudder bulb is specially designed for container vessels of all sizes. These two different orders for container feeder vessels underline the strong market position of the "manoeuvring system with a twist".

Chinese shipyard Guangzhou Wenchong has ordered 12 Becker Twist Rudders for a series of 2,038 TEU feeder vessels under construction for Taiwanese Wan Hai Lines. This marks the second series of Wan Hai vessels to be equipped with Becker rudders this year.

The other order for five – and the option for a further five – Becker Twist Rudders has been placed by Jiangnan Shipbuilding from China, where a series of 2,200 TEU feeder ships is under construction for Danish Maersk Line, designated for feeder services in the Asian market.
