Elogrid is a patented tunnel thruster grid that improves maneuverability, lowers fuel consumption and helps vessels comply with the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) and other upcoming rules and regulations.
This state-of-the-art product, designed with Elomatic’s computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations, is set in a ship’s tunnel openings to prevent water from undesired swirling in the tunnels. The Elogrid blades are set in a radial direction to decrease swirl and increase jet axial momentum. Each Elogrid is custom designed based on the vessel-specific hull form and flow direction, enhancing the entire ship solution.
Performance verified with measurements on aboard Viking Line M/S Gabriella.
Four Elogrids were delivered for the vessel’s two 2.4 m tunnels.
