ICE Marine Design’s Business Development Director, Coen Landa, recently attended the Danish Maritime Fair – a maritime exhibition that ran concurrently in Copenhagen with the World Maritime Technology Conference. There he assisted Bluewater Engineering Ltd – the inventors and promoters of the SKYTUG concept – at their stand. ICE’s involvement in developing the SKYTUG concept was in the hydrodynamic and naval architecture design of the catamaran hull and hydrofoils.

James McGarley, Managing Director of Bluewater Engineering Ltd said:

“The SKYTUG concept has now been successfully validated through calculations, computer simulations and limited scale physical testing of kite arrays and tank testing of a vessel scale model. We are now looking for support from industry to build an oceangoing scale model to further demonstrate the technical and commercial benefits of SKYTUGs.”
