Piening Propeller Customised Propellers, Ship Propulsion Systems and Vessel Repair Solutions

Piening Propeller power package

Piening Propeller offers comprehensive ship propulsion solutions, including a total package of systems, propellers, and steering gears with shaft brackets.

Vessel propulsion systems for new-build ships

Piening Propeller’s power package comprises a full propulsion system, which can be integrated into a vessel’s structure, providing an excellent solution for new ships.

Customised bladed propellers

Every propeller supplied by Piening Propeller is custom-designed to meet the requirements of its intended vessel.

The company has seven bladed propellers and similar products for other vessel types.

Piening Propeller looks at the sailing profile of each ship, how much it is running and in what conditions, before designing its propellers. Other factors the company takes into consideration include efficiency, preferred noise levels and vessel speeds.

Transmissions for optimised propulsion

Supporting its design applications, Piening Propeller incorporates Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen (ZF) gearboxes into its propulsion systems for naval vessels.

The company designs or pre-calibrates propellers for the RPM, which works best, then see how it fits with other gearbox ratios to get a range of performance data to provide fully optimised propulsion systems on its clients’ vessels.

One of the major references is Turkey, which became a big partner in export business of Piening Propeller and ZF with its Coast Guard and navy.

Thrust bearings for high-quality performance

Piening Propeller has developed a range of thrust bearings, to be part of the stern gear. The goal is to gain optimal performance and efficiency, which has already been achieved with prototype models of new systems.

Specialised repair services for shipping vessels

Piening Propeller supplies an extensive range of repair services and supply spare parts. The majority of repair contracts come from the shipping industry, which include coastguard boats, research ships, mega yachts and naval vessels.

Complementing its design and production services, Piening Propeller operates a dedicated repair and maintenance department. The company’s workshops are run in accordance to the necessary class of certification, and apply to areas such as production, repair work and welding.
