ABB Claims Greater Fuel Efficiency with New Azipod Propulsion Line – gCaptain

Did you know this about Azipod? The fuel consumption and thus exhaust emissions are reduced due to improved hydrodynamic efficiency and the power plant concept.

Improved hydrodynamic efficiency is a result of reduced hull resistance when traditional shatfline and related brackets can be eliminated and optimum hull design can be utilized.

Pulling type propeller is also working in an optimum environment with highest efficiency. The power plant concept provides fuel savings by optimizing the loading of the diesel engines.


The power management system connects or disconnects diesel generator sets to the network depending on the vessel power requirement, reducing both inefficient low load operation and running hours of the diesel engines. One of the main sources of vibration is the propeller.
