Exceeding Expectations with Teignbridge’s Largest Propeller

Teignbridge has proudly completed the supply of the propeller for the first new Beam Trawler to join the UK Fishing fleet for almost twenty years. When Teignbridge was approached by a Dutch-based Shipyard, requesting a high quality and high-performance custom-designed propeller that was able to provide in excess of 20 tonnes bollard pull at 10 knots speed, we said ‘no problem!’. After a visit to the Shipyard, and in close collaboration with the aft ship shaper and nozzle designer, Teignbridge’s technical team was able to provide a propeller design solution that has exceeded the shipowners, Brixham based Waterdance, demands. The propeller designed and supplied by Teignbridge to the BM-100 Georgina of Ladram, is a 3.2-meter diameter, 5 blade Teignbridge Skewed Kaplan design, with a finished weight of 2,396 kg and approved by the Classification Society, RINA. During her first sea trial, Georgina of Ladram was able to reach 23 tonnes bollard pull and a top speed of 11.5 knots, on sea trials, both exceeding expectations. This has been called a huge milestone for English fishing ‘’Georgina of Ladram is the first new beam trawler to arrive at the South Devon harbour of Brixham for 30 years, making her delivery an undoubted milestone for the English fishing fleet.’’ – Fishing News John Williams, a Waterdance representative has commented: “After a week of testing, sea trials, bollard pull tests and the necessary inspections, during which the MCA delegated the whole of the certification process to RINA, Georgina of Ladram demonstrated a 23 tonnes bollard pull and a top speed of 11.5 knots, both exceeding our initial expectations. Teignbridge was fantastic to work with and I would definitely recommend them.’’ Teignbridge is very pleased to have contributed to such great success!
