Ship propellers from MMG have been setting the benchmark for decades in terms of design, size, quality and efficiency. The key to our success are propellers that perfectly match the vessel, its engine and the purpose of the ship.
As fuel prices are increasing, ship owners are revising their requirements. The trend towards slow steaming has made propeller efficiency a top priority. Our new label »Efficiency by MMG« is reserved for propellers of the latest generation that offer not only powerful propulsion but help to conserve valuable raw materials, minimise CO2 emissions and reduce operating costs. With »Efficiency by MMG«, we respond to the ever more stringent environmental and fuel efficiency requirements for maritime vessels.
MMG is setting new standards in the field of high-efficiency propeller drives with the innovative “5D Propulsion” concept. By using five innovative digital technologies we guarantee design quality and production accuracy that are unique worldwide.
Our objective: Making transport by sea as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible – now and in the future. All our activities – from the design department and the production floor to the sales office – are dedicated to this challenge.
