How do you reduce CO2-emissions for your vessels?

Our VentoFoil units use the wind as propulsion power. Sail the same distance and reduce fuel consumption up to 60%.

Benefits of the wind

VentoFoil suction wings harness wind power in a revolutionary way that sets them apart from conventional rigid windsails. Utilizing a unique ventilated wingsail technology, the VentoFoils deliver superior performance through an ingenious aerodynamic process.

  • Banking Covenants (Poseidon): Ship owners are required to reduce CO2 emissions. Wind propulsion can help meet these demands, making it easier to secure attractive financing.
  • Carbon Tax: The implementation of a carbon tax will drive the adoption of sustainable practices. Wind propulsion improves emissions per nautical mile, significantly lowering your carbon footprint.
  • Sustainable Fuel Alternatives: New e-fuels are more expensive, but VentoFoils offer a cost-effective solution for various business cases.
  • Fuel EU: Wind assist on board provides a 1%, 3%, or 5% benefit, demonstrating clear advantages.
