Fighting the tornado

Recently MMG applied its new Tip Vortex Cavitation Reduction (TCR) technology to a series of 10000TEU container vessels. During inspection of these vessels slightly paint wear was observed on the rudder. These occurred in the vicinity of the propeller tip wake indicating a strong tip vortex. MMG applied surface modifications which influence the cavitating vortex from the propeller blade tip and hence reduce cavitation. The TCR technology has been developed through MMG’s continuous research programme and is ready to be applied to all kinds of propellers.
