Identification

SolidWater™ Ship Propeller delivers a laminar discharge and moves only the water necessary to move the ship.

The technology effectively eliminates Bernoulli effect (Eliminating cavitation and the precavitational state). This is a breakthrough in fluid dynamics and as such applies to both air movement and water movement. SolidWater™ effectively eliminates Bernoulli effect (Eliminating cavitation and the precavitational state), this is a breakthrough in fluid dynamics and as such applies to both air movement and water movement. The solution not only reduces fuel use (by a factor of five) but extend range, improves manoeuvrability, reduces noise and lowers ship construction costs. Outfitting all tankers (VLCC class) with SolidWater™ Ship Propeller would be the same as removing 9,000 times all the cars in the world from the roads.
