 VAF Instruments: Fuel Saving Potentials Via Measuring Propeller Thrust and Hull Resistance at Full Scale: WP-2100-GB-0416 - Fuel Saving Potentials via measuring propeller thrust and hull resistance at full scale-cover (2)This paper presents the possibilities offered by the full scale measurement to identify fuel saving potentials and emission reductions. In addition, the measurement results and the possibilities of the propeller thrust and torque measurements on a +13000 TEU container vessel in service, will be presented. Visit our stand #102 at Shipping Insight 2017 for the sequel to this whitepaper; “Measuring the full scale performance of a propeller and bulbous bow retrofit via propeller thrust measurements”.
