Innovative marine engineering consultancy, BAR Technologies, and front-running green maritime technology provider, Yara Marine Technologies, have announced that the ‘first cut’ of the steelwork that will form the first production run of BAR’s pioneering WindWings has been completed.

During the first half of 2023, two WindWings will be installed on MC Shipping-owned vessel the Pyxis Ocean, and four WindWings will be installed on the Berge Olympus owned by Berge Bulk. Global commodities business, Cargill, which charters the Pyxis Ocean, will be the first operator to see fuel savings and lower carbon emissions from the WindWings installation.

As global shipping prepares to implement the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rules from 1 January 2023, vessel owners are increasingly turning to technologies that may be retrofitted to existing vessels to enable them to reduce their carbon emissions.

The installation of WindWings allows operators to save c1.5 tonnes of fuel per WindWing per day on average global routes. This directly facilitates a significant contribution to CO2 reduction in the shipping industry – with c4.7 tonnes of CO2 saved per WindWing per day assuming the use of heavy fuel oil for main propulsion.
