PROPULSION SYSTEMS FOR RO/RO CONTAINERSHIPS, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE CONTROLLABLE-PITCH PROPELLER

The authors' company has had long and extensive experience with controllable-pitch (CP) propellers and marine geared diesel plants. In 1974, on the basis of this experience the company built the world's largest CP propeller (46,000 hp (34,300 kW)). This paper describes the design features of the propeller, its operating experience, the reasons for adopting a CP propeller, and the historical background of the merchant ship in which the propeller was installed.
