The development of the AIRCOAT technology is challenging and may offer a fascinating potential to reduce fuel consumption, GHG emissions and biofouling of ships while breaking new ground. It seems to be superior to all existing technologies on this area.

Physicist, 19 years of research in hydrodynamic and hydroacoustics, 2011 – 2014 member of ITTC specialist committee on Hydrodynamic Noise, recent EU research projects: Hydrotesting Alliance, SONIC and eSHaRk.
