In line with the environmental vision of the Belgian shipowner Fast Lines, Wärtsilä EnergoProFin has been installed on the fixed pitch propeller of the coaster vessel Fast Jef. The installation of Wärtsilä EnergoProFin has resulted in reduced fuel consumption by up to two per cent. It also reduced propeller-induced noise and vibrations.
We calculate with a payback time of one year for the investment.
