the future of shipping
Marc Van Peteghem: “The wind is free, clean and available everywhere. There are solutions to clean emissions - scrubbers, clean fuels like hydrogen, biofuel, etc… and there are solutions to minimise the engine power required to sustain a given speed but the only ‘two digits’ (percentage of saving) possibility is using wind power. In the future we believe ships will be propelled using a mix of aeolian and photovoltaic energy and probably hydrogen. Reducing the speed is very effective in reducing emissions."
