MAN Diesel & Turbo - Kappel Propeller Retrofit for Indian Oil Tanker Jag Lavanya

Copenhagen: On 4 November 2013, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s PrimeServ retrofit team signed an agreement with Great Eastern Shipping Company (GESCO) of Mumbai, India regarding a propeller retrofit upgrade for their M/T Jag Lavanya – a Samsung-built 105,000 DWT crude oil carrier from 2004.

Kappel fixed pitch propellers
MAN Diesel & Turbo recently announced a strategic focus that added the Kappel design to its fixed-pitch propeller portfolio, both for newbuildings and as a retrofit solution to vessels already in service. After a decade’s cooperation with inventor J.J. Kappel, MAN Diesel & Turbo took over the Kappel design business in 2012 and has since developed it further in terms of fixed-pitch propellers. The fuel savings and performance characteristics for controllable-pitch propellers, featuring the unique Kappel blade design, have been well documented over the last five years.

Increased efficiency
Retrofit calculations on different fixed-pitch propellers evaluated for the M/T Jag Lavanya show the superiority of the Kappel design. Christian Wollerup Sørensen, Sales Manager, MAN Diesel & Turbo said: “With this vessel’s speed and operating profile, the new Kappel propeller will deliver a fuel saving of 4% together with a reduced level of pressure impulses to hull – and without adding any other, efficiency-improving devices.”

Short delivery time
The four-bladed, 6.9 metre Kappel propeller for the Jag Lavanya will be delivered from China in January 2014. “As a result of the excellent and efficient cooperation between the Mumbai shipowners and MAN Diesel & Turbo’s India and Frederikshavn locations – and last, but not least, our Dalian Marine Propeller (DMPC) production partner in China – we agreed upon an extraordinarily short delivery time to match a planned docking by the vessel”, said Christian Wollerup Sørensen.

Propeller production in China MAN Diesel & Turbo’s prolific partnership with Dalian Marine Propeller was recently confirmed with another order – a production agreement for a series of 7.2-metre Kappel propellers for the world’s largest car carriers to be built by Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry, China.

The Great Eastern Shipping Company Limited is India's largest private-sector shipping company. The company has two main business areas: shipping and offshore. The shipping business is involved in the transportation of crude oil, petroleum products, gas and dry bulk commodities, while the offshore business services the oil companies in its offshore exploration and production activities through its wholly-owned subsidiary Greatship (India) Limited.
