Propeller Boss Cap Fins License


M.O. Ship Tech Inc. directs worldwide sales and promotion of the Propeller Boss Cap Fins (PBCF), a propeller efficiency enhancing device developed in 1987.

M.O. Ship Tech Inc. recently concluded the PBCF license contract with Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd., a major Korean shipbuilder. Under this licence SHI will be allowed to conduct PBCF sales activities in Korea, including model tank testing, design, manufacture, delivery, etc.
Propeller Boss Cap Fins system boosts fuel efficiency. The device bolts onto the boss cap of an existing propeller, and breaks up the whirlpool-like vortex that forms behind the rotating propeller. The result is a 4 - 5% improvement in fuel efficiency and a 1 - 2% increases in speed. These improvements are even more dramatic over longer voyages. A PBCF can be installed in just five hours, and the cost is quickly recovered in fuel savings.

PBCF is now patented in 12 countries. The device was developed jointly by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL), West Japan Fluid Engineering Laboratory Co., Ltd., and Mikado Propeller Co., Ltd. PBCF has won awards from The Society of Naval Architects of Japan, The Marine Engineering Society of Japan, and The Japan Machinery Federation. PBCF is now installed on over 370 ships and also on many workboats and fishing vessels.
