BECKER RUDDERS FOR TWO TT-LINE GREEN SHIP ROPAX VESSELS

Monday, September 2, 2019 

Chinese shipyard Jiangsu Jinling has selected Becker to supply twisted flap rudders with rudder bulb for two high-efficiency twin-screw ro-pax ferries.

The next generation Green Ship concept has been designed by OSK Shiptech and is under construction for the German TT-Line company. Becker’s energy-efficient rudder design with both flow-optimised bulb and twisted leading edge profile will contribute to the expected 50% emission reduction compared to the previous ro-pax generation.

Additionally, the exceptional manoeuvrability of the Becker Flap Rudders Twisted will allow flexibility and fast turnarounds in ports.

The dual-fuel ro-pax vessels can be powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas) and have a length of 230m each, with the first of the two ferries scheduled for delivery in 2022.
