Optimal Manoeuvring Solutions Manoeuvring system with Van der Velden® Hydro Dynamic (HD) profile rudders The high efficiency Van der Velden® Hydro Dynamic profile rudders provide an excellent manoeuvring performance. They have an asymmetrical profile and are always applied in a pair. The HD rudders can be used with or without a nozzle and have been especially developed for inland vessels in combination with a 2, 4 or 6 rudder propulsion set-up. The 2 DWK 6080 is a sturdy, asymmetric steering gear especially developed for Van der Velden® HD rudders and the Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR rudder systems....

Manoeuvring system with Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR rudders Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR rudder systems are especially developed for optimal propulsion efficiency in combination with first-class manoeuvring characteristics. The accurate and intelligent design of the rudder trunk only requires one grease filling. Its eco-friendly design saves money and reduces the use of lubricants. With their smart dimensions, Van der Velden® DOLPHIN 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...

Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel System Van der Velden Marine Systems has developed an innovative retractable tunnel system, especially developed for inland vessels. The Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel offers major benefits in terms of speed, loading capacity, manoeuvrability and reduced fuel consumption. In addition, an overall propulsion efficiency of approximately 10% can be achieved. Tunnels are commonly used on inland ships, ensuring a proper water flow into the propellers at shallow draft. The downside of conventional tunnels is an increase in hull resistance, a lower efficiency and, consequently,...

Van der Velden DOLPHIN LTT™ propellers Van der Velden Marine Systems has many years of experience in propulsion technology on inland vessels. All this expertise has resulted in an optimised propeller with reduced turbulence at the tips of the rudder blades: The Van der Velden DOLPHIN LTT™ propeller (Less Tip Turbulence). Combined with the Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR nozzles, rudders and spoilers, and possibly a Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel, the Van der Velden DOLPHIN LTT™ propeller ensures a perfectly integrated and completely balanced manoeuvring and propulsion system that offers considerable fuel...

Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR nozzles The optimisation of the nozzle profile, combined with the hydrodynamic rudder profile and the option to apply the Van der Velden® FLEX Tunnel, provides considerable propulsion efficiency. The inside of the Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR nozzle is constructed of Duplex material. Special attention is paid to applying sufficient welding material to the inlet and outlet of the nozzle to ensure an optimal connection with the carbon steel section. Van der Velden® DOLPHIN XR nozzles provide considerable propulsion efficiency when combined with a previously installed manoeuvring...
