Wind assisted propulsion of merchant vessels

Increased fuel costs and focus on reducing emissions have increased the interest in harnessing the power of the wind to propel commercial ships. The project aims to demonstrate the potential of wind assisted propulsion together with companies within the field and apply the state-of-the-art tools for ship (and wind) routing to maximize the benefit from wind power.
