Wind-assisted propulsion systems for ships are developing further every day.
Bureau Veritas is the new member of the International Windship Association (IWSA) to assist in the development of various renewable solutions. BV’s addition is expected to boost IWSA’s development with the establishment of regional wind propulsion ‘centres of excellence’ or ‘hubs’ around the world.
French maritime company Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) Group is the latest member of the IWSA. As the firm commented ‘The need to reduce fuel costs and future proof vessels in preparation for decarbonization costs is growing and the embrace of technology solutions that can deliver double digit savings for retrofit installations and significantly higher savings for optimised new builds makes a lot of sense.’
