bound4blue – IWSA Member
bound4blue’s is a Spanish company founded in 2014 with the mission to deliver automated wind-assisted propulsion systems as a turn-key solution to all shipowners and operators looking to decrease their fuel-related costs and pollutant emissions.
The system produces effective thrust from existing wind, an affordable and clean energy source, reducing the overall main engine power required and, thus, its fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Offering a turn-key solution to customers, the generated savings allow payback below 5 years, never reached before. The solution is suitable for both retrofitting and new builds and almost every type of vessel without local restriction. Furthermore, it operates autonomously (so no extra crew or training is required) and it is completely foldable, allowing the implementation in vessels in which other less efficient solutions cannot be installed, increasing safety as well.
Their vision is to power the world with wind. The company is now working on a real-scale implementation onto three vessels (two paid installations and one co-funded by the European Union) and by 2025, they expect to execute more than 100 projects/year.
