Becker Nozzle

Becker Marine Systems has decades of experience in designing nozzle solutions. One important step was the invention of the Kort Nozzle. Today the Becker Nozzle is offered in two basic designs:

  • Becker Fixed Nozzle
  • Becker Steerable Nozzle

The most common type is a fixed nozzle combined with a rudder or flap rudder. This arrangement is widely used for all kinds of work boats, such as AHTS, tugboats and fishing vessels. The nozzle improves the BP performance of the vessel, which is necessary to fulfil the requirements of such vessel types.

The steerable nozzle demonstrates greatly improved manoeuvring performance by generating higher lateral forces. Less space is needed for the overall propulsion arrangement and better efficiency is achieved by placing the propeller further to the rear than the fixed nozzle. The steerable nozzle guarantees the highest pull combined with excellent manoeuvring performance.

Becker Nozzle products are fully compliant with DP regulations and can be used as a part of the DP system. Due to the excellent rudder forces at lower speeds and in BP mode, the Becker Steering Nozzle demonstrates excellent station keeping results in DP and is therefore the perfect choice for vessels operating in DP.
