Event Navigation

Wind is certainly more than a blast from the past.

The efficiency of wind-assisted ship propulsion can help reduce fuel consumption and emissions from maritime operations, and several different sail technologies have been brought to the market.

So what has happened since our last Tech Update on wind propulsion 2,5 years ago?

On november 2. Maritime CleanTech invites leading experts to get us up to speed on the development.




  • Wind Power Propulsion a Part of the Green Transition – Øystein Huglen, Head of Innovation and Project Development, Maritime CleanTech
  • How much can windpower contribute to reduced emissions – Andrew Hurford, Lloyd’s Register
  • Relevant Solutions Roadmap:
  1. Rotor wind power- Jukka Kuuskoski,  Norsepower
  2. Kite wind – Stephanie Lesage, Airseas
  3. Wind sails  – Ziad Kairouz, Yara Marine
  • The Orcelle Project – How Collaboration can put wind in your sails –  Lars Dessen, Wallenius Wilhelmsen
  • Potentials and pitfalls of an emerging technology –  Sofia Werner,  RISE- SSPA Maritime Center



This webinar is open to all.
