The VEEMSkewplan propeller is a further evolution to the highly successful VEEMKaplan propeller. The Skewplan is designed for use on trawlers, tugs and long liners. Not just a skewed Kaplan, the Skewplan incorporates many features not found on competitors’ propellers. Blade foil sections have been modified to suit modern trawling and bollard pull applications, providing maximum efficiency. A variable pitch distribution unique to the VEEMSkewplan is used to suit the inflow angle at each location within the nozzle. Blade tips are unloaded to reduce tip losses, whilst avoiding cavitation erosion. The Skewplan is the ideal choice for any vessel equipped with a nozzle, and incorporates the following features;

  • Variable pitch distribution,
  • Very high blade skew,
  • Durable blade design,
  • High reverse thrust trailing edge detail, VEEMSkewplan-yatch
  • High efficiency double ogival blade sections,
  • VEEM’s highly successful anti-singing edge detail,
  • Minimum manufacturing accuracy of ISO 484/2 Class S,
  • VEEM’s robotic high lustre polished blade surface,
  • ISO 1940/1 G2.5 (gas turbine) high accuracy dynamic balancing,
