A ground effect vehicle (GEV) is one that attains level flight near the surface of the Earth,
making use of the aerodynamic interaction between the wings and the surface known
as ground effect. GEV are also known as a wing-in-ground-effect (WIG) vehicle, flarecraft,
sea skimmer, ekranoplan, Skim Machine, or a wing-in-surface-effect ship (WISE).
The wig ship runs 180~250 km per hour in position of 1~5 meters of upper area of the sea.
Wigship heavy Industry started the design since 2009, and finally it has successfully took off
the sea trial on December 2011. Overall length is 29 meters, 27 meters width of the body,
7 meters of height are built by an aluminum alloy with lightweight purpose and 2 turbo pro
engine with diesel. Total weight of this WHS-500 wig ship is approx. 18 tonnes including passengers.
Hivetecks® H102 decorative laminate honeycomb panels were chosen by the shipyard for lightweight
purpose and luxurious interior spaces for commercial guests. Usual honeycomb makers in the world
produce both side of the decorative laminates on both honeycomb panels, but only Hongseong
Industrial can supply one side laminate honeycomb panel with flatness, without curving.
