The engineers Friedrich Mewis and Dirk Lehmann have won the German Environmental Award 2022 with their invention of the power-saving Becker Mewis Duct® (BMD), developed to make a significant contribution to environmental protection in maritime shipping.
We sincerely felicitate our former colleague Friedrich Mewis, who used to be head of the "Resistance and Propulsion" department at HSVA for ten years, as well as Dirk Lehmann, BMS Managing Director, on this great success. Congratulations – well deserved!
HSVA is proud to have been a development partner to test the BMD in its beginning and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Becker Marine Systems GmbH for the great cooperation over all the past years – we are looking forward to further projects in the future!
