With a new generation of the CP hub, SCHOTTEL has further optimized the concept of the 5-bladed controllable pitch propeller. The new hub shape serves to reduce formation and risk of cavitation. As a result, the propellers are ideally suited for higher speeds and thus for use e. g. in military ships or yachts, which require high power density, low pressure pulses and minimized noise generation. The new hub is also available with full-feathering mode.
The new subsidiary SCHOTTEL Italia opened for business on 1 October 2020. Managing Director Giorgio Alemanno brings with him extensive market expertise and many years of sales experience in the shipping industry.
SCHOTTEL expanded its international network of subsidiaries with the opening of a new branch office in Istanbul in January.
