Type QE - Nibral propellers

The QE propeller is a variant of the standard high performance Q propeller, featuring thicker blades and a slightly larger blade area. This adds strength and overall robustness, but will reduce efficiency and top speed. QE propellers could be a good choice for marine commercial vessels when operating in an area of temporary debris and flotsam, such as crushed ice and other floating objects that can damage the propeller.

When considering changing to the QE propeller, please consult your local dealer or local Volvo Penta Sales Application Engineer for size guidance and speed calculations.
