Windwings: a breath of fresh air for cargo shipping’s green revolution

In a remarkable turn of events, cutting-edge yacht racing technology has set sail to revolutionize cargo shipping and combat its greenhouse gas emissions. The Pyxis Ocean, a Mitsubishi-owned bulker, recently embarked on a journey retrofitted with two WindWings, designed by British marine engineers BAR Technologies.

These innovative WindWings harness aerodynamics to generate propulsion, potentially saving up to three tonnes of fuel daily on its voyage from Singapore to Brazil. While the cost may seem steep at $2.55 million, the fuel savings could yield a payback in just 7-10 years. This technology promises a cleaner and more sustainable future for the shipping industry, setting sail towards a brighter horizon.
