About us

Econowind is a Dutch based company, related to HCP and Conoship international, a ship design and engineering office in Groningen. Econowind is fully dedicated to  wind-assisted ship propulsion.

We developed the eConowind-unit, supported in the form of a subsidy by the European Union and the three northern Dutch counties (SNN) with the VIA funding for regional development.

The project ended mid-2019 with the test execution of the complete working prototype on a vessel at different sea states. Further test will be done and market introduction will start in 2019.

The system will also be designed as retrofitted VentiFoil® units directly to ships. From Q3 2019 we expect to participate in a WASP-study to application of the unit in regular sea services.
