The growing global desire to cut C02 emissions from all modes of transport has finally begun to drive significant change within the maritime industry.
Fish, wildlife habitat, shorelines and anchored vessels are all vulnerable to damage caused by wakes made by boats. This often leads to local speed restrictions, resulting in slow journey times, particularly in urban areas.
Integration of the drivetrain into the ‘T’ section of the foil underwater removes the requirement for a driveshaft in the vertical structure. This not only increases efficiency of the mechanical system, it means that our foils are incredibly efficient, and generate no wake when operating at high-speed.
