The Wing nozzle is an in-house development. This nozzle has a small system diameter and a special hydrodynamic Wing profile, which improves the propulsion efficiency at higher speeds and reduces fuel consumption. These advantages make this nozzle especially suitable for ships in the higher speed range.
DMC has designed the Wing nozzle profile with modest dimensions; it has the smallest possible influence on the turning circle and thrust performance at low and cruising speeds.
Especially suited for
Single Weld Spinning Method
Damen Marine Components has developed the Single Weld Spinning Method based on a single weld seam on the inner side of the nozzle. This machine can produce nozzles with an inside diameter ranging from 1,000 mm to 5.3 m outside. Using a completely automated system, the spinning machine can handle stainless steel, duplex, steel and special steel materials.
A nozzle is a sustainable product by definition because it significantly reduces fuel consumption and CO² emissions. The Spinning Weld Method makes the production of the nozzle even more environmentally friendly, since there is less welding and grinding, this saves energy and emissions. In addition, this method saves production time and enhances DMC’s stable price/quality ratio, which makes it more cost efficient.
