As the maritime industry explores decarbonization options to achieve the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) GHG targets for 2030 and 2050, wind-assisted propulsion emerges as a strong contender. However, today’s wind-assisted propulsion is a stark contrast from traditional sails of early fleets. Today’s options are more advanced and as this technology has evolved, so has its many challenges and advantages.

Join Zeliang Xu, ABS Senior Engineer for the Digital Class Capability Team, and Sotirios Mamalis, ABS Manager for the Global Sustainability Center, as they unfold what wind-assisted propulsion technology means for the maritime industry today and where it will take us in the future.
