MARPRO PROPELLER / Concepts

MARPRO PROPELLER
MARPRO PROPELLER

At present, all large ships in the world use large propellers as propulsion devices, which will inevitably scratch some large fish during the voyage. The wounds of these marine animals can't heal, they can only gradually get infected and wait for death.
Therefore, we have improved the traditional propeller with a shaft to a propeller without a shaft, and the propeller blades are distributed centripetally. Relying on the rotation of the wheel drives the intermediate propeller blades to rotate. This type of propeller blades are not exposed outside, they will not scratch fish.
