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 initial innovation project transformed into our latest design as retrofitted or newbuilt VentoFoil® units.
