Smart Green Shipping / HYD collaboration

This exciting project to explore the possibility of installing automated sails on bulk carriers has received funding from Innovate UK for a 12-month feasibility study.

The study has been carried out in close collaboration with Drax and Ultrabulk to investigate the potential for wind assisted technology to be retrofitted to a 225 metre Kamsarmax bulk carrier.

The wind assist technology is developed by HYD with an overall aim of reducing emissions and therefore environmental impact as well as offering cost savings to the global shipping industry.
