Wind-Ready vessels

Small adjustments in early design stage enables an effective wind propulsion system in the future. It gives:

⇒ Time to evaluate different options
⇒ Better performance than a retrofit
⇒ Less off-hire if you decide to install wind propulsion

What is Wind-Ready?

According to American Bureau of Shipping, the term “wind-ready” means:

  • Hull is built for supporting the wind propulsion system
  • Vessel meeting stability requirement with Wind Propulsion Unit
  • Electrical capacity

How does it work?

When ordering a new vessel, make sure that the ship design is adapted for the option of having future wind propulsion.
