Ship propellers from MMG have been setting the benchmark for decades in terms of design, size, quality and efficiency. The key to our success are propellers that perfectly match the vessel, its engine and the purpose of the ship.
As fuel prices are increasing, ship owners are revising their requirements. The trend towards slow steaming has made propeller efficiency a top priority. Our new label »Efficiency by MMG« is reserved for propellers of the latest generation that offer not only powerful propulsion but help to conserve valuable raw materials, minimise CO2 emissions and reduce operating costs. With »Efficiency by MMG«, we respond to the ever more stringent environmental and fuel efficiency requirements for maritime vessels.
MMG is setting new standards in the field of high-efficiency propeller drives with the innovative “5D Propulsion” concept. By using five innovative digital technologies we guarantee design quality and production accuracy that are unique worldwide.
Our objective: Making transport by sea as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible – now and in the future. All our activities – from the design department and the production floor to the sales office – are dedicated to this challenge.

KNL Networks connects the maritime industry to the sea of opportunities IoT offers by providing simple, reliable and affordable connectivity through a dedicated network with military-grade security. Headquartered in Oulu, Finland with commercial HQ in Copenhagen, Denmark and sales representation in Helsinki, UK and Norway we’ve set out on a mission to revolutionize what global IoT connectivity means for the maritime industry. Our dedicated connectivity means your connection cannot be used for other communication purposes like GMDSS or crew welfare. Data leaves the KNL radio through our VPN, encrypting all data. Each KNL system is part of a worldwide network of KNL radios, which act as terminals or base stations, depending on their status or location. At sea, or in remote areas, a KNL radio uses the high-frequency band to connect automatically to another KNL radio that has a cellular connection. Nearshore or in port, KNL radios automatically connect directly to cellular. The KNL Global mesh network allows for multiple parties to securely access their equipment onboard a vessel
