on-demand webinar

Maritime innovation on the sea with wind power ship design

Estimated Watching Time: 40 minutes


Large cargo ship on water.

“On the sea” is the second session in a series of three on-demand webinars featuring BAR Technologies’ work at the leading edge of maritime innovation.

Wind is the free fuel for tankers and bulk carriers. This session focuses on the application of integrated design and engineering software tools for the development of a novel green propulsion system. Maritime innovation on the sea features wind power ship design.

Wind assisted ship propulsion

BAR Technologies combines wind-assisted ship propulsion with shipping route optimization, to increase the fuel efficiency of sea-going vessels by 30% or more, depending on whether the installation is retrofit or on a newbuild with hull optimization. Initially aimed at bulk carriers and tankers, further variations will be developed for other large ship types. Register for this on-demand webinar and watch the feature demonstration of WindWings from BAR Technologies.

Shipping route optimization solution

Over the past few years, we have seen the emergence of a global effort to control climate change and build a sustainable low-carbon future. In order to decarbonize the world fleet as soon as possible, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has introduced strict standards with regards to emissions. Complying with regulations requires a mixture of out-of-the-box thinking and cutting-edge technologies. BAR Technologies demonstrates how an effective shipping route optimization solution aids curbing emissions on the sea.

Fundamentals of ship hydrodynamics

In this webinar, you will learn more about the fundamentals of ship hydrodynamics and how a flexible product development platform helps create differentiation in design. Register for the on-demand presentation for demonstrations from industry experts and presentations on effective design optimization.
