Agile Maritime Transportation with Patented Technology

6 maart 2023

This startup is developing the future of maritime transport! Their aircrafts are the most efficient electric flying vehicles for the lowest cost per mile in the maritime world. The patented design utilizes VTOL and ground effect technologies to maximize speed, range and operational flexibility while reducing offshore cargo operational emissions by 60% to 99%.

Maritime Transportation

The passionate core team (possessing various technical scientific backgrounds) has been working on the ground effect technology since 2010 and autonomous aerial systems since 2008. With a strong network in the maritime and unmanned systems industries, we bring together the operational understanding with ground-breaking technology to revolutionize maritime logistics for a more cost-effective, faster and cleaner future. The company aims to extend this technology for diverse maritime areas with a wide range of specifically designed WIG vehicles.

Business model:

The company is leasing their products with training, maintenance and data as part of the lease cost.

  • Faster to Certify & Upscale: Ground effect vehicles are already out there and certified within IMO. 10x cheaper to certify and upscale compared to any other technology.


  • Efficient & Best in Class Range: Ground effect makes Speeders up to 40% more efficient in aerodynamics enabling the best in class range. VTOL&Amphibious: Speeders can take-off/land from naval platforms, sea surface, helicopter pads and flat surfaces in harbour areas.


  • Low Emissions/Low Lifecycle Cost: Hybrid electric propulsion provides lower emissions compared to surface vessels or helicopters. Electric propulsion and unmanned operation enables lower cost for maintenance and operation.


  • Feasible: Speeders provide a flexible, affordable, sustainable and reliable solution combining the benefits of helicopters and marine vessels.


  • Flexible: Ability to fly out of ground effect and VTOL capability enables rough sea operation. Ability to land over water allows waiting for longer durations for inspection/surveillence missions. Cargo bay can be modified for inspection or cargo missions.
