Chaos Posted January 25 Report Share Posted January 25 From the Canary Media Site French startup Airseas have started trials of kite power supplementing the energy used on cargo shipping. https://www.canarymedia.com/articles/sea-transport/watch-this-cargo-ship-fly-a-giant-kite-to-save-fuel-and-cut-emissions 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.
