Maritime Innovation Award 2019

Conoshop International BV is the winner of the Maritime Innovation Award for developing a highly innovative practical auxiliary propulsion unit for ships. The eConowind unit is a 40-foot container with two foldable ‘Ventifoil® Units’. These are upright innovative wing profiles, 10 meters high, that directly convert wind power into thrust for the ship, approximately five times as much as sails with the same surface area. The eConowind units can be mounted as easily as a 40-foot container. The Ventifoil® units autonomously rise in favorable winds and orient themselves optimally to deliver the maximum thrust. With constant sailing speed, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced by an average of 10 to 20%.
