The new vessel also features a new bow shape designed to reduce wave-making resistance. For propulsion, an innovative system is adopted that effectively converts the main engine power into propulsion power by positioning fins forward of the propellers and placing special grooves in the propeller boss cap.
According to Mitsubishi, the ADM vessels also will feature a high-efficiency hull and a newly designed bow shape that will reduce wave-making resistance. To further enhance propulsion and reduce CO2 emissions, the ships will feature positioning fins forward of the propellers.
