Nowadays pods are very common on cruise ships as their operators face spiralling demands regarding vibration and noise in combination with heavy usage of electric energy. MARIN has over five years experience in model testing podded propelled vessels, on more than 35 commercial and research projects. From the first, it has made use of pod units measuring, amongst other quantities, thrust and torque inside of the propeller hub. This report bij Cornel Thill.
