We are the design bureau that based on the Ekranoplan (a.k.a. WIG or GEV) design knowledge of professionals involved in Soviet and Russian Ekranoplan projects, and our aim is the create the WIG design solution applicable for the commercial usage in the marine transport industry. Currently, we are conducting the R&D phase and working on the principal design issues. The key features that we concentrate on while working on the WIG craft are:
- Safety and simplicity
- Seakeeping performance
- Passenger comfort
Please proceed to the Concept section for more information about our approach to the WIG design.
At the present stage, our primary goal is to develop and build the first prototype of a multi-purpose marine ekranoplan EP15. The product is going to be designed as the multi-purpose WIG platform (max speed 200 kmh, 12 - 25 person capacity) that may be applied for different transport tasks:
- passenger and cargo transportation
- search and rescue on water
- patrol and security on the water
Please proceed to the FAQ section for more information about the EP-15 craft (pricing, certification, etc.).
Thus, our current priority is to attract investments for building and trial operation the EP-15 prototype for further serial production. Moreover, as the design bureau, we are interested in the participation in other projects related to WIG design (development of the bigger capacity craft, special purpose WIGs, unmanned surface vehicle on the WIG base, etc.) Please proceed to the Products section for more information about the cooperation opportunities.
