The Hull Vane®

Lifting efficiency

One of Van Oossanen’s major innovations is the Hull Vane®, a fuel saving device in the form of a fixed foil that is placed below the stern of a ship. This ’hydrofoil’ influences the stern wave pattern and creates hydrodynamic lift, which is partially oriented forward. This reduces the ship’s resistance and improves the seakeeping. The Hull Vane® was invented by Dr. Ir. Peter van Oossanen.

Today, Hull Vane BV is operating as an independent sister company of Van Oossanen, in order to make the Hull Vane® available for the worldwide maritime market.
