Climate change and air quality are driving the shipping industry to use less fossil fuel. Inexpensive, carbon-free energy sources are hard to find and take time to build, however, except for the one that has always existed: wind.
Wind-assisted ship propulsion is one the key technologies in decarbonizing the future of maritime shipping. Vaisala’s world-class wind and weather sensing technology helps operators make the best use of current and upcoming wind conditions.
