MAN Diesel & Turbo Approves Takeover of Kappel Propeller

Press Release
Wednesday, April 04, 2012

The board of MAN Diesel & Turbo approved the company’s takeover of Kappel propeller,  including designs, software, and intellectual property, together with the continued cooperation of  Jens Julius Kappel.

New fuel-saving and energy-efficient propulsion opportunities are available from the MAN Alpha propeller program, which now fully integrates the Kappel tip fin propeller blade designs for both controllable-pitch propellers and fixed-pitch propellers.

“We have had a good cooperation with MAN Diesel & Turbo for almost 10 years, and our joint projects have gone well,” said JJ Kappel. “I hope that MAN will get the most out of the Kappel technology. Our cooperation does not end here; it will in fact become more intense.”
 
In today’s market, green technology, fuel-savings, energy optimization and increased propulsion efficiency are more important than ever – for both new ship designs and for existing ships’ retrofit and upgrade solutions. The energy-saving technology, which MAN Diesel & Turbo now owns, will be matured and implemented in a greater variety of customer solutions, including e.g. hydrodynamic integration of rudder bulbs, high-efficiency rudders, hull’s flow-guiding devices and ducts.
Both new sales and the retrofit after sales business will benefit from the now MAN owned technology. In retrofit installations, especially in situations where ships undergo a changed operational profile with slow-steaming and de-rating of main engines, MAN Diesel & Turbo will be able to deliver superior propulsion solutions, including propeller designs offering even larger fuel savings.
