Launching new website eConowind

With the launch of the new website: www.econowind.nl, eConowind takes another step in the promotion and development of Wind-Assisted Ship Propulsion with the eConowind-unit, for which a 12m full scale prototype is under construction.

The eConowind unit is a product of eConowind: a Dutch based company, daughter of Conoship International and HCP. The development of an economical Wind-Assisted Ship Propulsion-unit that can easily be applied on new and existing vessels was initiated by Conoship. The resulting eConowind-unit is a combined effort with eConowind BV and an important step to realize Conoship International’s vision on a future of emission-free shipping. That goes beyond the IMO 2020 goal to reduce the future fleet CO2 output.

The development of the eConowind-unit is supported by the European Union and the three northern Dutch counties (SNN) with the VIA funding for regional development.

For further details about the eConowind-unit please visit the new website at www.econowind.nl or visit our presentation on the latest VentiFoil developments in the Natural Propulsion seminar on Wednesday May 30th in the BlueWeek 2018 in STC in Rotterdam.

Research & Development

Conoship International has a strong focus on research & development and the application of R&D-results in innovative ship designs, improving efficiency related to aspects like fuel efficiency, cargo hold, lowest EEDI, CO2 output minimisation and more. We have initiated and are involved in several research projects for alternative fuels, to enable shipping to remain the biggest and one of the greenest players in future transport.

Multiple eConowind-units can be applied on a ship, leading to expected average fuel reductions up to 25%, but this is only a small part of our vision on the fleet of the future. Later this year we will present our designs for a fleet that will be able to fulfil any foreseeable future demands, up to zero-emission.
