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 Ventifoils directly to ships. From Q3 2019 we expect to participate in a WASP-study to application of the unit in regular sea services.
