OUR MISSION

Fuel Consumption Reduction Systems for Merchant Ships

We aim to use innovative thinking and design to deliver new products to reduce the impact of merchant ship operations on our planet. Less hydro carbon fuel burned means lower carbon emissions.

Armada Technologies has developed a largely passive “air lubrication system” to significantly reduce merchant ship fuel consumption.
