Catamaran Hydrofoil

M-Technic Ltd is partnering with Newcastle University School of Marine Science and Technology and The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult to develop hydrofoil systems for commercial catamran vessels - particularly offshore windfarm support vessels.

M-Technic has now designed and fitted the hydrofoils to two study vessels and the results have exactly met our design expectations in performance and fuel benefits.
