Ephicas SideWing™ for lorries
The Ephicas SideWings are a smart application of aerodynamics. In lorries, the most aerodynamic drag is created on the underside of the trailer between the trailer and the semi-trailer. The wind flows inward and weighs down the lorry, which doesn't start losing speed, but consuming more fuel. Attaching a plastic wing to the side of the semi-trailer solves the problem and reduces the lorry’s fuel consumption by up to 15%. This smart technology was developed by the Delft University of Technology and has been applauded by the transport sector as a standard solution with the potential of being used around the world and contributing towards a cleaner environment.
