Description

The shipping industry transports 90% of the world’s cargo, resulting in enormous air pollution impacts. Designed as an engine assist technology, the rigid wingsail system is completely foldable to the ship's deck to avoid safety issues during harsh weather conditions or during loading/unloading operations. It is fully automated - no extra crew required - and will orient itself to maximize performances for any wind direction. As a result the wingsails thrust capacity is ten times higher than that of traditional sails and other existing novel designs. By generating effective thrust from wind power, Bound4blue’s rigid wingsails allow vessels to operate at their nominal service speed with reduced engine propulsion, thereby lowering fuel consumption and polluting less.
