O-foil Wing Propulsion

O-foil is an integrated propulsion system that consists of a wide impellent wing, a hybrid drive train and an adapted manoeuvring system. The up-and-down motion of the hydrofoil was inspired by the swimming motions of dolphins.

The operation of the O-foil is comparable to the propeller. The wing, which utilises the full width of the vessel, moves up and down to generate thrust through the water. The difference compared to a propeller is that the propulsion surface is much larger, which means the efficiency is much higher. O-foil combines this technology with the latest drive train technologies and an optimum ship design. These together reduce fuel consumption by up to 50%, as well as the emissions.
