New cargo ship design for sustainable sea transport unveiled

Vindskip, a patented hybrid merchant vessel for sustainable sea transport, introduced by Lade AS is meeting future demands for fuel economy and emission control through its innovative concept.

Fuel savings with this design is estimated to be 60%, with an estimated 80% reduction in ship emissions. Vindskip uses its hull as a giant sail, which helps harness a lifting force to pull the ship along.

Lade AS also believes this design could eventually be used for cruise ships of any size. Engines will still be required, and monitoring software will calculate the wind conditions and best route for the ship.

It would use a LNG-powered electrical generator for the remainder of its energy requirements and to get going from a stop.

Lade AS is currently offering this revolutionary design to shipowners, shipyards, and other consultancies for licensing.
