MOL participates in the “Wind Challenger Project” (launched in 2009), a joint industry-academia research project led by the University of Tokyo. The project focuses on using advanced sails to provide propulsion for merchant vessels. It aims to reduce vessels’ fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by maximizing the use of wind power. In January 2018, MOL and Oshima Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. took over the university-led project and launched an initiative aimed at equipping a vessel with a sail. Currently they are working on detailed design of the sail and software development of the sail control system.
