As Propeller blade designer you will be working in close collaboration with our customers and focus on transforming their requirements into efficient solutions. To develop and adapt the design of the propeller and rudder based on our customer’s needs, you are analysing product performance by using a combination of both CFD and model testing. We have our own unique testing facility where we perform model-scale testing in cavitation tunnels. This gives us the opportunity to deliver custom made products based on our customers’ expectations for the specific vessel.
