📢ERMA FIRST ESK Engineering Solutions S.A., a Global Leader in Sustainable Maritime Solutions recently launched ERMA FIRST FLEXCAP an energy saving device (ESD) that builds on the proven capabilities of propeller boss cap fins to optimize maritime efficiency and sustainability.


♻️ERMA FIRST FLEXCAP offers reduced fuel consumption and emissions in line with CII and EEXI requirements.


⚡️By enabling fins to catch and absorb the rotating water force, the solution weakens the propeller hub vortex, reduces torque and means more energy can be channeled back into the propulsion drive train as thrust.


📈The resultant increase in propulsive efficiency can yield fuel savings of two to five per cent, which translates into operational cost savings and a relatively quick return on investment. Crucially, ERMA FIRST FLEXCAP also achieves a reduction in ship greenhouse gas emissions and improves CII and EEXI performance.



✅ Easy to install. Provided the vessel can be sufficiently trimmed, can be installed while the ship is afloat. Alternatively, installation can be carried out while the vessel is at sea using underwater services.

✅ Easy to maintain. Once fitted, only maintenance required is polishing during routine cleaning intervals.

✅Future-proof. Easy to upgrade in line with changing conditions/evolving requirements.

✅Extended service life. Can extend the service life of the propeller by reducing cavitation.

✅Reduced noise and vibration. Can also be deployed to minimise PNV, reducing potential negative impact on marine life.

✅Material. Highly durable nickel-aluminium bronze.
