A surfboard with a hydrofoil attached and powered by mechanical means is an electric hydrofoil. The speed necessary to lift the board out of the water and onto the hydrofoil is produced by the electric motor on the hydrofoil. By shifting their weight on the board, the rider controls the craft.
It functions in a manner similar to how an aeroplane wing functions. The shape and pattern of the wing increases water pressure on the underside of the foil as the vessel passes through the water and decreases it on the upper side. Water pressure forces the foil upward as the speed rises.
GLOBAL ELECTRIC HYDROFOIL MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global Electric Hydrofoil market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Electra uses hydrofoil technology to travel faster for longer.California-based startup boundary layer technologies has unveiled a proposal for an electric hydrofoil ferry that promises to be twice as fast and as long-lasting as current electric ferries. With two lifting foils that lessen drag in the water and a podded propulsion system at the back, the boat, known as “electra,”
cruises at a speed of 40 knots and has a range of up to 100 nautical miles. In order to make passenger ferries electrified, hydrofoil technology is essential. The speed and range of an electric ferry can be increased by reducing the drag of the vessel by a factor of two, which also reduces the powering requirements.
The majority of ferry routes throughout the world could now be electrified as a result. Electra is powered by batteries that can be fully charged in under three hours and have a 9000kWH capacity (based on a 2400kW charging system).
According to boundary layer technology, the battery-powered system greatly reduces cabin noise by up to 20 db when compared to conventional ferries. The 150-person boat also guarantees a calm trip even in stormy water.
The electra’s electric system is less expensive as well as better for the environment. When compared to fast ferry options that burn fossil fuels, the maritime tech business claims that the Electra ferry offers operating expenditure savings of up to 35%.
