French startup Airseas have started trials of kite power supplementing the energy used on cargo shipping.


Airseas deployed both a 2,700-square-foot kite and a 5,400-square-foot version.

Airseas estimates that its Seawing system will eventually be able to curb ships’ fuel consumption — and associated greenhouse gas emissions — by an average of 20 percent.


I believe there are some trials of onshore based systems in Scotland and will update when information is available / appropriate.

I haven't been out on either with Board, buggy or indeed static over the last 3 or 4 months, fingers crossed for some 1/2 decent weather.

Regards from the UK
