SGS Continues Success Record in Latest Projects
Finned Propeller Boss Cap - Installed underwater during Cargo Operations
Achieving instantaneous fuel consumption savings sounds like magic right? WRONG! The installation of Finned Propeller Boss Cap systems have a proven track record of delivering a propulsion system efficiency improvement of between two and seven percent; based on current vessel design, propeller design and system installed. Subsea Global Solutions has installed all types of these systems produced by all of the leading manufacturers. Together with the original equipment manufacturers, Subsea Global Solutions develops complete repair procedures that detail exactly how the boss cap will be exchanged and re-installed with an OEM and class approved method; anywhere and any time.
Subsea Global Solutions has been the contractor of choice for several global shipping companies since they are able to provide one fixed price to perform the exchange of these Boss Caps in any one of their ten locations globally. What this means is that if a vessel transits to Rotterdam, Italy, through the Panama Canal, Miami or even the West Coast of the USA, Subsea Global Solutions can exchange the Boss Cap with an approved method at a fixed schedule and price.
Over the past three (3) months, Subsea Global Solutions has installed 5 finned Propeller Boss Caps for one global container ship operator. With their intention of installing them on their entire fleet, this client wanted a global service provider who could provide them with a fixed price and schedule so they could work with their charterers on planning these vessel performance improvements while at the same time they wanted to control the costs associated with this work.
Subsea Global Solutions has consistently delivered on their proposed schedule from multiple locations globally. From start to finish, Subsea Global Solutions has consistently exchanged these units in 28 to 32 hours. Since they have demonstrated our performance globally, this operator has committed several more installations of the finned boss cap systems.
