Hydrofoil Design

In 2018, co-founder Gijsbert van Marrewijk won the Maritime Designer Award for his systems engineering approach in #hydrofoil#design.
The main prize was a €24k funding for research into hydrofoil safety. The research was executed by MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) and TNO.
Together with these institutes, we have looked into conceptual hydrofoil safety, maneuvering, drag and "#splashdown". The latter happens when a hydrofoil vessel loses lift and suddenly goes from foiling to displacement mode.

Last week, the final part of this research was completed with a full-sized splashdown test in IJmuiden. With the test, a range of accelerations that the vessel may encounter was determined. We now have a better understanding of safety in hydrofoil design for our future projects!
