TWIN FIN CONVENTIONAL WITH A TWIST
A more reliable alternative can be conventional diesel-electric or dieselmechanical propulsion with a long shaft and machinery positioned inside the hull. But the gear and electric motor take up valuable space, and is also difficult to retrofit on an azimuth-fitted vessel.
Picture below: First Twin Fin fitted vessel is a retrofit delivered from Damen Group - Shipdoc Yard Amsterdam It is a Seismic Survey Vessel ‘NAILA’ type Ulstein SX124 belonging to Owner Polarcus DMCC.
Two existing azimuth thrusters are exchanged with Twin Fin increasing the bollard pull with almost 40% equivalent to the fuel saving obtained with the conversion.
