WiSP 2 focuses on the incorporation of wind-assisted ship propulsion in the regulatory framework (including EEDI, EEXI and CII), and on realistic operational conditions, including research into its impact on manoeuvring regulations. The aim is to show what kind of fuel savings and emission reductions shipowners can achieve, enabling them to make informed investment decisions and to ensure compliance with GHG regulations.

WiSP 2 will be the gateway to WASP adoption by the maritime industry
