Reduction of fuel consumption (reduction of environmental impact)
The implementation of advanced, modern solutions in the new Vulcan yacht entails significant ecological effects, defined primarily in the reduction of fuel consumption in the operation process. This effect will be generated due to the synergy resulting from the combination of:
- a highly effective hull reducing hydrodynamic drag by about 15% compared to classic hull lines for this type of units;
- besides half of immersed surface piercing propellers drive that does not generate resistance in operational mode;
- Surface piercing propellers with the highest efficiency – up to 71% (the remaining 50–60%). The application of all the above solutions has a direct impact on the reduction of fuel consumption by approx. 20% compared to similar units.
