Hydrex: Propeller cone fins installed underwater offer immediate fuel savings
Thursday, Jun 25, 2015
Last month Hydrex installed different types of propeller cone fins on bulk carriers and general cargo vessels. These operations were carried out in many different ports. As a result ship owners can instantly start benefitting from the fuel savings a propeller cone fin brings.

Hydrex can install any type and size of propeller cone fin underwater, on both new build or in-service vessels. We carry out these operations following the specific procedures required by the involved OEM, adapted for an installation afloat.

Propeller caps like these are claimed to decrease fuel consumption from 3% up to 5% and reduce cavitation on rudders and hulls. Having to wait for the next scheduled drydocking to have the propeller cone fin installed can waste up to four years of fuel savings. In contrast, the cost of the underwater installation can be earned back in only a few months. The savings are considerable.

For more information on propeller cone fin installations or other underwater operations, please contact one of our offices. We are at your disposal 24/7 and ready to mobilize almost immediately. You can find more information in our general info brochure.
