The WISP JIP was officially kicked off in Paris on May 28. The objective of this JIP is to overcome barriers to the uptake of wind-assisted propulsion, and specifically to:
- Improve methods for transparent performance prediction
- Use the improved methods to provide ship owners/operators with fast low-cost predictions for their fleet
- Review the regulatory perspective including status of rules and regulations, identify gaps and make recommendations, and provide examples on establishing compliance
