Ground-breaking retractable ship bow foils for unbeatable cost-saving, emission reduction and motion stabilization

Project description

Safe, steady and sustainable sailing through the waves thanks to smart equipment

The safe and stable navigation under circumstances of tumultuous water is a great challenge for medium-sized vessels. Bad weather navigation affects the speed of the boat as well as the health and well-being of the crew. Moreover, it increases fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The EU-funded SmartWings project will introduce a unique solution for ship stabilisation and forward thrust for medium-size ships. Through the innovative production of the first-ever retractable bow foils, SmartWings aims to offer a cut-rate tool for stable ship motion, contributing to the transition to zero-emission navigation.
