Our mission is to direct the global maritime shipping industry towards carbon neutrality. We will build & operate a combustion-free cargo sailing vessel by synthesizing old-world ship building techniques with avant-garde energy & propulsion design. Our ship, Ceiba, will …
The combination of the sailing space frame and the vessel to be propelled turns the combination into a Proa configuration, where a Proa is a typically a small sailing canoe, having a sail, with an attached outrigger …
Magnuss developed and patented a class-approved mechanical sail for dry bulk carriers and tankers that reduces fuel consumption up to 50%. The sail is a 100-foot tall spinning, hollow, metal cylinder that propels a ship. The Magnuss …
We are launching a project to examine the most feasible sea routes in the North Atlantic, supporting our ongoing research of passenger needs and requirements. We are currently working on a business plan to operate a sub25 …
