EnergySail

Wind & Solar Power for Low Emission Shipping!

The EnergySail (patent pending) is revolutionary device designed by Eco Marine Power  that will allow ships to harness the power of the wind and sun in order to reduce fuel costs plus lower noxious gas and carbon emissions. The EnergySail is unlike any other sail - it can be used even when a ship is at anchor or in port and has been designed to withstand high winds or even sudden micro-bursts.

The EnergySailTM is not just another sail!

The EnergySail (patent pending) can be fitted with a range of renewable energy technologies such as solar panels or wind power devices. It is a truly unique renewable energy platform specifically designed for shipping that can be fitted to a wide variety of vessels from large Capesize bulk ore carriers to naval and coastguard patrol ships. 

patrolboat_long_fin_webA variation of the EnergySail that is suitable for Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV's) and smaller ships such as passenger ferries or fishing vessels is also being developed.

The EnergySail can be configured to suit the operational profile of a vessel. For example the number & type of solar panels can be changed or a variety of other equipment can be installed.

This means the device can be configured for a particular type of ship, for the route the vessel operates on and/or the operational profile or mission profile of the vessel. This makes the EnergySail a truly flexible platform for renewable energy technologies for lower emission, more environmentally friendly ships.

The flexible nature of the EnergySail design will also allow for it to be upgraded during the life-cycle of the ship it is fitted to so that newer technologies can be incorporated as they become available such as more efficient solar modules or panels. 

It has also been designed so that it will require little maintenance and be robust enough to withstand the harsh conditions of an operational life at sea.

Although the EnergySail has primarily been designed for Eco Marine Power's Aquarius MRE System other applications for its use are also being studied.

It could be for example used as a stand-alone unit on a cable laying vessel, coastal tanker or oceanographic ship. In addition a simplified version of the Aquarius MRE System including a modified EnergySail could be utilised on a range of smaller vessels.

An alternative version of the EnergySail could also be used horizontally.

An example of how the EnergySail could be incorporated into a modern ship design is the Aquarius Eco Ship. This low emission - sustainable ship design concept includes an EnergySail array and other technologies that solar & wind power can be used to reduce fuel consumption and lower noxious gas emissions on commercial ocean going ships.

EnergySail Key Features

  • Flexible design. Can be upgraded and modified after installation if required.
  • Automatic positioning via computer control system.
  • Can be integrated with other systems and equipment on-board ships via control system architecture.
  • Designed to be safe, robust & reliable. Multiple layers of safety are incorporated into the design.
  • Robust & reliable.
  • Pathway to low emission shipping!
