In the new Joint Industry Project The Wageningen F-series Propellers a standard series of fixed-pitch propellers will be developed which encompasses design features of contemporary propellers. The new series will be designed for best achievable efficiency, while simultaneously taking into account requirements on cavitation, noise and vibrations.
The need for the series results from the growing awareness of safety, ecological and comfort aspects in ship design, and the increasing electrification of ship propulsion systems. The project will take three years to complete.
