Econowind offers assistant wind propulsion on ships. Ventifoils ( really thick airplane-like wings using boundary layer suction ) generate large thrust forces compared to their size. Making these foldable and in some cases containerized gives practical solution to modern shipping situations and challenges. We save up to 20% fuel depending on the amount of units and wind conditions.
