Windship presents the Net Zero Solution
The Windship Technology solution is an auxiliary power system. Each rig is a three-wing foil set of 35 to 45 metres in height, depending on the size of the ship, providing a significant thrust to propel the ship through the water.
Using the Windship system brings a scalable solution that harnesses the use of wind, provides material fuel saving for users, significant global emissions savings, and an important carbon trading opportunity. It also meets the 80% CO2 reduction that will be required by the International Maritime Organisation by 2050, taking into account the projected future growth of shipping.
Shipping is the lifeblood of international trade. About 95% of all goods traded are carried on the sea efficiently, at a low cost and safely. The enormous expansion of world trade has reduced poverty worldwide and has improved the quality of life for hundreds of millions of people.
Windship is the path to net zero consisting of a holistic solution of wind, hull and drive system.
