|New marine propulsion system claims to reduce emissions by 75%|

Engineers have claimed to develop a new method of propelling a ship or displacement vessel while saving at least 75% of energy consumed by current propeller-based systems, yet maintaining the same performance.
The Gamma Propulsion System (TGPS) is easy to build and simple to retro-fit to existing ships.
Each of four original pumps in this ride delivers 87 litres/sec for 22kW energy consumption. The TGPS pump over-delivered at 97 litres/sec (12% performance increase) but only used 2.04 kW, some 10.8 times greater efficiency.
