The XR rudders are especially developed for optimal propulsion efficiency in combination with first-class manoeuvring characteristics, which comes from rudder angles up to 80°. The accurate and intelligent design of the rudder trunk only requires one grease filling. These rudders have an eco-friendly design, which is cost efficient with still a good manoeuvring performance.
With their smart dimensions, the inventive XR rudders have a better control of the slipstream, providing maximum speed and reducing vibrations and sound. The carefully designed rudder profile gives less resistance and a much reduced fuel consumption.
To further enhance the propulsion performance you should consider the Van der Velden® XR hydro spoiler. The Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel has been designed to be combined and integrated with the Van der Velden® XR rudder and hydro spoiler.
Best suited to vessels operating on the inland waterways. The profile is focused on course keeping, efficiency and fuel saving. Suitable for speeds up to 25 km/h.
Van der Velden Marine Systems has developed an innovative retractable tunnel system, especially developed for inland vessels.
The starting concept behind the Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel is its ability to retract. With the tunnel embedded into the vessel hull, resistance is lowered and efficiency increased.Read More
