World’s first wind-powered cargo ship sets sail with groundbreaking giant metal ‘wings’

Posted by in categories: energy, transportation

The world’s first wind-powered cargo ship has set off on her maiden voyage, using her giant metal ‘wings’ to fly through the ocean.

The WindWings have been fitted onto Mitsubishi-owned Pyxis Ocean — chartered by Cargill — and was designed by a team of British Olympic sailors.

It’s been built by Yara Marine Tech, and the WindWings are expected to save up to 30 percent of shipping fuel on average.
