The Aim is to reduce the Drag of large ocean-going vessels.

The Gills Unit of the GILLS System is a device for Ultra Fine Microbubble generation. Different to conventional ways of microbubble generation, the GILLS System reduces frictional resistance, thereby reducing power requirements by up to 15%.

GILLS achieves the reduction of drag by generating Ultra-Fine Microbubble (peak dia 1.0mm) by applying the physical phenomena Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI).

The Microbubbles are released as soon as generated. The Microbubbles stay in the water a long time and form a  cloud with hull-tightening force on it.

Any ship that goes through the cloud, the hull drag is being reduced by hull-tightening Microbubbles
