WindWings Technology Onboard


WindWings operate based on Bernouli’s principle, the same effect that allows commercial aircraft to fly. As wind blows across the vessel deck, the wings will automatically position themselves to generate lift in the direction of vessel movement.

The result is a reduction in mechanical power demand on the main engine, and a corresponding reduction in main engine fuel consumption. Our WindWings are built by BAR Technologies, which have designed the ultra-high performance sail systems used by TeamUK in America’s Cup championship yacht racing.
