SNAME Propeller

This propeller symbolizes the arctic marine community in Calgary. It was given to the city by the Arctic Section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) in 1993, the society’s centennial year. Approximately 1.2 meters in diameter, the propeller served many years in the arctic before it was donated to SNAME by Osborne propellers of Vancouver, B.C.

The Arctic Section of SNAME was started in Calgary in 1980 to support arctic activities. The unique experience and expertise of Arctic Section members has gained international recognition. Member skills have been used in the design and construction of some of the world’s most advanced ice breaking ships and arctic structures.
