Becker Marine Systems equips vessels with highly manoeuvrable and efficient products such as the Becker Twist Rudder e. g. for the largest container ships in the world. As the technology leader, Becker products are state-of-the-art for manoeuvring solutions. Spade rudders, twisted rudders, maintenance-free rudders and rudder-bulb solutions have been developed by Becker.
The successful Becker Mewis Duct® has increasingly been contributing to sustainable shipping. More than 1,000 of the energy-saving devices have already been sold, enabling a reduction of over 3.0 million tons of CO2 on the world’s seas. The nozzle, which is mounted in front of the ship’s propeller in order to save energy, developed into a very successful product as did the Becker Mewis Duct® Twisted with its special suitability for faster ships and container freighters.
Becker is committed to the establishment of environmentally-friendly liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) in the maritime industry. The LNG concept we developed for ship propulsion as well as the alternative shoreside supply of electricity to cruise ships by means of the LNG Hybrid Barge will in future be supplemented by a containerised concept, the LNG PowerPac®, for use on container ships, bulkers or tankers.
The Becker staff now consists of 260 highly qualified employees in our offices in Germany, China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Norway and the USA. And the various Becker products have been installed on over 8,000 vessels worldwide.
