What are WindWings?

WindWings provide substantial reductions in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and can be installed on any type of vessel.  

Designed by the innovative naval architects at BAR Technologies, the WindWings system combines dynamic multi-element wings and advanced route optimization to harness the power of the wind. This results in significantly improved fuel efficiency.

WindWings are designed for low OpEx with easy operation and low maintenance: 

  • The wings are fitted to the deck of the vessel, but can be folded away at the touch of a button
  • The system is automated, which means no additional crew is required 
  • With our global service organization standing by, customers are guaranteed maximum uptime
  • All components are made from high-quality, durable, marine-grade materials
  • Efficient, robust, reliable, and safe by design

Efficient, robust, reliable, and safe are our guiding principles throughout every part of the design process. 

We manage the complete implementation of WindWings on your vessel.
