Centipede Cargo Transport


The following design system is intended to reduce the cost of international shipping by sea. The design is an electric "tug boat"  that derives electricity from a "gravity drive" then being a hydraulic system to produce fuel less electricity to motivate maritime electric propulsion for shipping.

The vessel has the ability to recover it's vertical position being able to roll over in the ocean... The design is a high speed hydrofoil that will reduce shipping times. The "cargo trailers" may then connect in large chains... like a "train in the water.... The cargo trailers then have amphibious capacity making them able to drive themselves unto the land.


The said "gravity drive" then a hydraulic system using silicone oil with a chamber to cause fluid motion by gravity and suction under high vacuum. The fluid motion then used in a generating assembly to cause advancement of the total flow cycle via compounding electricity ie.... the generator's electrical output then applied back into the generator's assembly electric motor.

* Note - the valve, post hydraulic impeller upon the generator's assembly, will then connect to a wide diameter flow pipe rated for the capacity / system velocity- at full performance dynamic of the total hydraulic flow system. The valve will also contain a safety fault system with max pressure safety regulation valve that will discharge the silicone oil into the lower tank should fault occur. Redundancy in system maximum speed is also required within the automatic valve system.


* Note - the max pressure safety valve upon the flow line / tube just before the generator assembly hydraulic impeller, then also containing a large diameter flow pipe connected via coupling with automatic flow volume flow valve... then venting silicone oil to the lower tank with regulation valve.. this is the "main balancer flow cycle",  flow pipe.


* Note -  the vacuum in the oil column tank will not continue to climb in vacuum. An operating negative pressure will be reached and maintained... The vacuum cycle contained within the top of the column will also have redundant purge systems to prevent any formation of volatile due to vapor... the  vacuum must cycle..... ie. ambient exterior system air change.... to then be converted into negative pressure "vacuum" within the oil column.


The above design system will stabilize the international shipping industry when oil becomes to expensive to use for cargo shipping on the sea....


The trailer may also be suitable for fishing / crabbing in high sea's then within the trailer assisted with a heated robotic servo arm then with the capacity to deal with crab pots and or fishing nets. The operator then within a heated sphere command chair within a spherical positional mobile. The command "pod" within the trailer will have eject capacity flotation a fuel less heater , redundant carbon dioxide scrubbers, vents with the ability

to seal, communications and small propulsion system then driven by a fuel less electric self sustained hydraulic draft cycle.
