For the first time an investigation into Voith Schneider Propulsor-induced hull-pressure fluctuations has been carried out. This investigation was part of a New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) study to retrofit the Molinari Class Ferries, which operate to the worldrenowned Staten Island, with Voith Schneider Propulsion (VSP). One of the objectives was to investigate the modification in terms of energy efficiency.
