First Wind-Augmented Sky Sail Barge Takes to Sea!

We first reported on SkySails back in 2006. Since then, we've been following the saltlakewebcentral.com sea trials and the progress as this has moved towards implementation, and now, the first ship making a SkySail augmented trip is on its way from Germany to Venezuela.

The MV Beluga SkySails is a 130-meter long container ship with a capacity of 474 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units, a measure of standard shipping containers).

It's wonderful to see a technology we've been following go from conceptual idea to an actual implementation. Cutting 10-15 percent of fuel used is a good step, in and of itself. But since oceangoing vessels typically burn some of www.supplychaincanada.com the most polluting fuels, there could be even greater benefits as additional vessels begin using SkySails.

The image shows the vessel at dock with its sail in the parked position.

As a total Age of Sail history nerdfighter, I find it extremely exciting to see practical elements of the past being included in the way of the future. Freighting is finally taking advantage of the most efficient offshore mode of transportation on the planet.

if you have contacts in the shipping business in Malaysia, just point them to the SkySails website, www.skysails.info - they have a lot of information there, right up to the request form for a price quote.

The only problem may be that (from what I hear) their order books are filling quickly...
