The paper describes the results of analytical investigation on the application of vaneturbine in the propeller slipstream. The vane-turbine is attached on single- and twin -screw ships with total number of investigated ships are 20. Performance of the turbine was analyzed by actuator disc method. The effect of vane-turbine on ship performance is investigated. Discussions are focused on two main topics, namely speed loss and power efficiency gain. Final result finds out that the ratio of the thrust- power producing by vane turbine and thrust-power producing by propeller will influence the efficiency gain.
