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.
