Bruntons Propellers’ long awaited new CPP System makes its public debut at this year’s METS exhibition at RAI Amsterdam, held from 15-17 November. Bruntons has spent several years developing a CPP propeller and its associated equipment which will solve several issues that have affected CPP’s since they were first introduced. In addition to manual control, the Bruntons CPP will be available with a fully automatic control system which will enable the vessel operator to switch between a selection of options varying between maximum power and maximum fuel efficiency.
