Through continuous theoretical and practical research, Servogear has developed an increasingly efficient propulsion system which today is successfully running in a great number of vessels in more than 36 countries all over the world.
Groundbreaking results have been achieved through Servogear’s all-inclusive approach, focusing upon the optimal working conditions of the propeller.
The propeller tunnel allows for larger propeller diameter with no increase of shaft angle and draught. Propeller rpm is reduced, as well as the surface pressure on the propeller blades, and the water flow entering the propeller is optimised.
This provides the propeller with the best possible working conditions resulting in a smooth and optimum propeller thrust.
A more even loaded propeller, Ecoflow™ gives a slimmer and lighter design, which means less weight and drag thereby further helping to achieve the highest level of efficiency. At Servogear, the calculation and design of the propeller tunnels is based on full utilisation of the flow below the hull, ensuring optimum interaction between hull and propulsion. Efficient propulsion means lower fuel consumption, more economic operation and less pollution.
Tank tests and full-scale verification tests have proven that the Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor™ is more efficient than any other known propulsion system currently on the market.
