Controllable Pitch Propeller


Controllable Pitch Propeller Systems

Wärtsilä Controllable Pitch (WCP) propeller systems provide excellent performance and manoeuvrability, and are recommended for vessels with frequent sailing routes that involve multiple operating conditions. These can be, for example, vessels requiring full power in both bollard pull and freesailing conditions, or that make frequent port calls. WCP propeller systems can also be applicable for vessels that encounter varying weather conditions or demanding operational requirements such as dynamic positioning. 

Benefits include: 

  • Reduce fuel consumption by up to 4%
  • Ease and reduce maintenance costs
  • Improve manoeuvrability
  • Help you meet IMO targets and the EEDI
