Kongsberg Maritime announced that it is dividing its industry-leading propeller systems into three distinct categories, C-Line, P-Line, and X-Line. The idea is to ensure the provision of reliable, safe, high-quality and high-performing propeller solutions which are adapted to all customer-specific requirements and pricing levels, building upon almost a century of hydrodynamic and engineering expertise. The demarcations are as follows.The ‘C’ in C-Line stands for ‘Configured’, and indicates that these propellers are configured within a pre-defined technical spectrum to suit customers whose priorities are short lead times and a strong performance-to-cost ratio. Numerous options are available within the C-Line propeller solution to fine-tune the offering further, presented in a lucid and straightforward manner which simplifies the decision process for customers. C-line simply enables higher quality and performance for the volume market.KONGSBERG’s P-Line propellers prioritize Performance, and are therefore suitable for customers prioritizing propeller requirements such as the highest efficiency and the lowest levels of noise and vibration. Multiple options are offered, and an expert KONGSBERG engineer will consult closely with customers to ensure that P-Line propellers are designed to their exact hydrodynamic and mechanical specifications.The ‘X’ in X-Line denotes ‘Extreme’, underlining the fact that these are fully-tailored propeller solutions intended for customers with an exceptional requirement for special features which go well beyond the norm. Close collaboration between customers and an appointed KONGSBERG project team is a fundamental facet of X-Line propeller solutions, and KM is pleased to confirm that the option possibilities herein are limitless, extending to the inclusion of R&D (research & development) for new solutions.
