Ship Propulsion assisted by Wind

Since 2014 NAOS is developing his own wind device (WSM – Wing Sail Module) to be installed on board of several type of ships to reduce fuel consumption.

NAOS has applied for  regional founding, teaming up with Concrane, a Trieste based company specialized in the design and construction of big crane for the marine sector. The outcome of the founding application shall be at the end of June.
In the mean time, a short comparison report has been issued, showing how more effective could be WSM compared with other system presently tested on board of some vessels, particularly those systems based on the Magnus effect, which presents a number of practical disadvantages and small range of profitable utilization.
