Deltamarin and Cargill launch virtual showroom of WindWings technology
Deltamarin has opened a virtual showroom for their WindWings technology in collaboration with Cargill and BAR Technologies.
WindWings is a wind propulsion device that collects wind energy and, according to its creators, has the ability to reduce a vessel's CO2 emissions by up to 30%.
The wide hard sails can be mounted on a ship's deck to harness the wind's strength and reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The developers claim that the nature of the vessel on which the sails are installed is equally important in terms of achieving maximum performance with wind assistance.
WindWings are presented in an interactive virtual showroom with customizable features such as the location of the wings and the direction of the wind.
At the end of 2020, Cargill and BAR Technologies will begin a strategic project with naval architect Deltamarin to introduce wind propulsion technology to commercial ships.
BAR Technologies' WindWings will be installed on the decks of bulk cargo ships in this project, which is still in the design stage. By 2022, the first vessels with the design should be on the water.
