Wind Turbines on Ships
Rapport, 2015

The start-up company PROPit AB together with Division of Electric Power Engineering has developed a concept for harnessing sea winds for simultaneous electricity generation and thrust, by using conventional, but modified wind turbines onboard merchant vessels. The primary market should be tankers and bulk ships with large and open deck space, operating on routes and in areas with favourable wind conditions. The business idea is to create substantial fuel savings while simultaneously reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
