Wind technologies for cleaner shipping
WASP Event: Wind technologies for cleaner shipping
Green electro-fuels are needed to achieve zero carbon shipping. However, green fuels are expected to be significantly more expensive than fuel oil per energy equivalent. Hence, fuel savings and wind assisted ship propulsion - offering free non-polluting energy delivered directly to the ship at sea - will become financially attractive as part of the green transition. The EU Interreg project WASP: Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion (https://northsearegion.eu/wasp/) installed several wind technologies on large commercial ships and conducted third-party validation to document fuel savings. For the first time these results will be shared and we will discuss if/how to promote wind technologies.
