Increasing world population, limited oil with rising cost, efforts to reduce global warming and an increasing trend towards sustainable energy, forced us to achieve a goal about the future marine technologie from today.
Hydrofoil is a lifting surface, or foil, that operates in water. They are similar in appearance and purpose to aerofoils used by aeroplanes. … As a hydrofoil craft gains speed, the hydrofoils lift the boat’s hull out from the water, decreasing drag and allowing greater speeds.
EEFS is a new innovative system based on high efficient retractable hydrofoil devices applicable for all kind of Motor Boat and Yatch. EEFS studies started in the early 2014’s. The point to start EEFS project is trying to reducing hull resistance also rising energy efficiency, cruising range and boat speed. During the test phase, our existing runabout boat test model has shown up to 45% resistance reduction instantly. After this revolutionizing result, 6.2 m long, deliberately, electrically driven runabout prototype is being used for sea trials for more carefully designed hydrofoils with a new automated mechanisms.
EEFS is a hydrofoil technology combined with our innovative patents. The front foil is located slightly forward of the LCG of the craft and two foils are near the transom. Foils are completely retractable and also rear foils can be used as conventional trim tabs. All these mechanism are controlled by a automation system. To control all boat motions, this mobile control box is designed with its own software.
EEFS is not limited with resistance reduction. As the boat slides on hydrofoils, it becomes extremely fuel efficient and provides a smooth, silent and comfortable ride. Automation system controls performance and 3 axis stability.
