MTS Amulet, an eco-tanker with a clear conscience 

In 2010, the motor tanker Amulet was taken into service. The 135-meters long and 14.15-meters wide vessel was commissioned by Frans Jansen, his son Igor and Ton van der Molen. They wanted as clean a ship as possible. The MTS Amulet is ‘green’ and sustainable, but also economic and competitive. The entire diesel-electric powered eco-tanker is ahead of its time.

Savings of 35% to 40% have been demonstrated in various usage profiles of the ship!

Logical solutions... for shipping

The Eprop system is a frequency-controlled diesel-electric drive that allows a normal barge to use up to 40% less fuel without any loss of speed. This result is determined by a different way of looking at the entire vessel, it’s normal sailing behaviour and the desired speed. The propulsion train is adjusted accordingly and shows significantly better fuel returns.
