Mitsubishi Advanced Propeller (MAP) Mark-W Propellers
For more information :
- High propulsion efficiency
- Highly reliable
- Maintains excellent propeller strength
- Excellent cavitation performance with streamlined tips and reduced blade area
- Compact design
- Lower propeller mass and moment of inertia
Used in Combination with Slow Steaming
Designed to suit slow steaming requirements, the Mark-W can improve fuel efficiency by between 3% and 6% (when designed for 70-85% MCR conditions). Taking the following MCR conditions as an example for a 6,300TEU container ship installed with a MAP propeller, fuel consumption can be decreased as follows with the installation of a Mark-W propeller: (Case 1) 100% MCR = 3.0%, (Case 2) 85% MCR = 4.0%, and (Case 3) 70% MCR = 5.0%. The amount of fuel saved in these cases are shown in Figure. By designing a propeller that matches the actual operational needs of a customer, it is possible, for example, to achieve fuel savings of between $300,000 and $500,000 per year when operating at 50% engine load.
MHI-MME has more than 100 years' experience in the design and manufacture of propellers, and has produced more than 5,000 propellers. Our propellers are developed in collaboration with R&D for shipbuilding, allowing us to incorporate the latest designs into all new ships.
