Individual propellers for more efficient propulsion.
Ship propellers from MMG have been setting standards for more than 65 years in terms of size, quality and efficiency. We are also leaders in the development of highly damping alloys, e.g. for naval and research ships. Our Silent Propulsion solutions reduce noise emissions from propellers. We
design propeller drives under the »Efficiency by MMG« label which are in perfect alignment with the ship, the engine and the operating profile. We achieve the highest design and production accuracy with our unique »5D Propulsion« digital technology. This facilitates fuel savings of up to 10% compared to conventional propeller designs.
Whether container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, cruise ships, naval vessels or supply ships – MMG designs and manufacturers propellers up to 160 tonnes and 11.6 metres in diameter for all ship classes and sizes. We guarantee the highest reliability by using copper alloys, the quality of which goes far beyond the standards required by the classification societies.
Custom-fit for the specific operating profile
Each MMG-espro is individually customised for the planned operating profile of the ship. Load, draught, drift angle, speed, current, wind and swell on the planned route – all play a crucial role in the conceptual design. MMG is able to incorporate over 2,000 operating points into the unique Multidata Design Concept (MDC). MMG not only sets new standards in data volume, but also exceeds the standard in terms of data quality. Weather data, for example, are broken down into the smallest detail, rather than just being recorded wholesale. MMG integrates empirical data from more than 65 years’ experience in propeller manufacturing. For above-average efficiency on slow or fast journeys, with a full or reduced load.
Highest production precision thanks to digital technologies
Whether the design potentials can be exploited depends in extraordinary measures on technical feasibility. The innovative 5D Propulsion guarantees unrivalled high production precision. We use highly accurate digital technologies, such as Numerical Propulsion Simulation (NPS), Optical Precision Measurement (OPM) and Numerical Controlled Processing (NCP). For maximum design accuracy and maximum efficiency.
Production under one roof
We have the largest continuous production line for ship propellers in the world with an annual capacity of 14,000 tons, facilitating an array of production possibilities. With the world’s largest induction furnace for copper alloys, computer-controlled five-axis milling machines and high-end machining centre, we are well equipped for all requirements. Experts use the latest laser measuring techniques to monitor quality. The MMG-espro does not receive the »Efficiency by MMG« certificate until everything is perfect.
