British company, Windship Technology, is proud to announce its scientifically-backed True Zero Emission ship design today, which reduces CO2, NOX, SOX and particulate matter emissions of bulk carriers to a proven 0%.
Registrar and classification society, DNV, has partnered with Windship Technology to conduct a full verification process of the design to classify emission reductions, safety and operability.
Shipping is responsible for 3% of global CO2 emissions – the equivalent of Germany’s output. By 2050, commercial shipping could, if unchecked, contribute upwards of 10% of net CO2 emissions.
In a marine engineering breakthrough, the whole ship solution from Windship Technology unites for the first time large solar arrays, carbon capture, optimised hull shapes, specialised weather routing software, a newly designed diesel electric ship drive system, and a patented triple-wing rig to achieve zero emissions.
The announcement comes ahead of the International Maritime Organisation’s Symposium on low-carbon emission shipping, starting tomorrow 11am UTC (watch here).
