Deltamarin, BAR Technologies and Cargill present WindWings virtual showroom
WindWings are large hard sails that can be fitted on the deck of a ship to harness the power of the wind and reduce the vessel’s fuel consumption and emissions.
WindWings is a wind propulsion system designed for significant wind energy harvesting, and it can reduce a vessel’s CO2 emissions by up to 30%. You can now experience the principles of the system in the virtual showroom.
WindWings are large hard sails that can be fitted on the deck of a ship to harness the power of the wind and reduce the vessel’s fuel consumption and emissions. Equally important is that the design of vessel where the sails are fitted takes into account the required characteristics for maximal performance with wind assistance. The virtual showroom presents WindWings with adjustable features such as the position of the wings and the direction of the wind, so you can explore the principles of how the complete installation works.
This unique energy-efficient design will play an important role in the maritime industry’s transition to zero-carbon emissions. Shipping decarbonisation is a crucial topic that technically consists of three areas: operational optimisation, design and equipment upgrades and alternative fuels. The most economically feasible solutions are a smart combination of the three, and sail development is a good example of the necessary synthesis between design, equipment and operational optimisation.
