Presentation of the Econowind unit at the 2018 New Years reception of Conoship International, including the showing of the 1:2 scale model.
After executed (CFD) calculations the first working scale model of 1:2 is realised. The first test results give us a bright indication for further improvements for the 1:1 model which shall be built in the first two quarters of 2018.
World wide prestation @ Europort 2017 At the last Europort we proudly present the first scale model (1:14) of the Econowind unit. Our concept of reducing the fuel consumption and CO 2 emission of every suited vessel.
