Teignbridge Reveal New Propeller Concept
The unique propeller is manufactured in aluminium bronze and is modular in design. Each blade can be removed and replaced if necessary. Known as the ‘Clamp on Blade’ design (CoB) it allows the vessel owner to store spare blades on board and if damage occurs, replace the blades without going to dry dock.
In addition, large propellers can be boxed or packed into a container for ease of transportation. The world-wide patent is pending, but the UK patent was confirmed this month.
The CoB has attracted huge interest at Seaworks with many ship owners requesting additional details with the intention of ordering. The CoB can be retrofitted to any shaft.
The CoB is on display at the Teignbridge stand PB53
