GATE Rudder System as a Retrofit for the Next Generation Propulsion and Steering of Ships

Project description

Innovative rudder system to increase ship energy efficiency

Reducing operating costs and improving the environmental sustainability of the shipping industry – across all vessel classes – is a top priority in the EU. The answer could be the Gate Rudder System, which is proving to be a remarkable energy saving concept with excellent manoeuvrability. Bringing together 18 technology experts and stakeholders, the EU-funded GATERS project will demonstrate the benefits of this system and why it can become the next-generation propulsion and steering system for waterborne transport. Specifically, the project will install and operate this system on a coastal cargo vessel. Next, the team will explore the system’s concept for oceangoing shipping operations. The technology is available for both new-build and existing vessels.
