SkySails is developing, producing and distributing a towing kite wind propulsion system that is world patent pending. As a result, ship operation will become more profitable, safer and independent of declining oil reserves.
The planned product range contains towing kite propulsion systems with a nominal propulsion power of up to 5,000 kW (about 6,800 HP).
On annual average fuel costs can be lowered between 10-35% depending on actual wind conditions and actual time deployed.
Under optimal wind conditions, fuel consumptions can temporarily be reduced up to 50%.
It is SkySails aim to reduce fuel consumption of modern shipping by the utilisation of environmentally friendly, free-of-charge wind energy.
