Drydock retrofitting of Becker Twisted Fin® to 7 container ships in turn completed by Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR).

In October 2012 Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) won the contract for installing the first Becker Twisted Fin on seven container vessels of the fleet of Hamburg (Germany) based liner shipping company Hamburg Süd. To complete the project in time, the vessels were routed in such a way that they could each be dry-docked for a maximum of six days every consecutive week. All ships have now been re-delivered.

The Becker Twisted Fin is developed in order to improve the performance of the vessel in combination with the propeller and the aft body of the vessel. After testing in the Hamburg Ship Model Basin HSVA it showed an improvement in reduction of  fuel consumption for this type of vessels close to 4%.

Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam is one of the 12 repair yards of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion in North West Europe, the latest members being ARNO Dunkerque (France), Shipdock Amsterdam and Shipdock Harlingen (NL). Some of the larger yards are Damen Shiprepair Götaverken (Sweden), Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen (NL) and Damen Shiprepair Brest (France). In Germany Damen Shiprepair & Conversion is represented by Zoepffel & Schneider GmbH.
