Highly efficient and reliable MAN Alpha propulsion

The MAN Alpha CP propeller designs effectively cover a power range up to 40,000 kW per shaft line. With no less than 23 different hub sizes, a cost- and performance-optimized solution is always offered. 3-, 4- and 5-bladed configurations are available.

The MAN Alpha FP propeller designs effectively cover the engine portfolio of MAN Energy Solutions. The propeller series are available in 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-bladed monoblock configurations. For high ice classes, bolted blade designs can be offered.

The MAN Alpha high-performance naval propeller range offers excellent coverage of the very specialized and individual propulsive demands – for example for various ship types, ranging from powerful combat frigates to offshore patrol vessels.

Efficiency-improving devices

MAN Energy Solutions masters a vast number of disciplines in relation to the optimization of aft ship parameters and special installation requirements. The perfected layout and hydrodynamic propeller integration are always ship- and hull-optimized.

The Alphatronic 3000 propulsion control system controls both straightforward CPP and FPP installations and various complex (multi-propeller, DM, DE and hybrid) propulsion application combinations with MAN low-, medium- and high-speed engines.

System competence

A vast knowledge and development base has accumulated during our many years, with a focus on the project planning, design, optimization, sales, order processing, supply, commissioning, and after-sales servicing of complete propulsion systems.

Shaft and stern tube

A wide variety of leak-proof and environmentally friendly stern tube systems are available with our propellers. We provide stern tube solutions for water lubrication and systems approved for lubrication with biodegradable non-toxic lubricants.

An optimal propeller for any application

Flexibility for efficiently covering all propulsion power requirements of MAN’s engine ranges – and for CPPs in particular, the focus is the shaft power range up to 40 MW. The optimized propeller performance from both CPPs, FPPs, and FPPs with replaceable blades and adjustable bolted designs – featuring customized blade configurations – contributes to energy-efficient propulsion with reduced impact on the environment.
