We (humans) are all passengers of the same (space) ship (the earth). Damaging it is foolish, (or selfish). It must be avoided.
Trade in goods today is enormous, increasing fast, and essentially made by sea shipping.
Global shipping has a significant impact on environmental degradation and climate changing.
Shipping operation main pollution factor is due to fuel combustion for propulsion.
Wind energy for ship propulsion is not a nostalgic dream, windship it is a key for a sustainable future.
This project investigates the feasibility for a ship to use wind energy for its main propulsion. As a result, an innovative rig configuration has been conceived to best match the demanding shipping industry expectations.
