Cargill, BAR Technologies to deliver wind sail solution for commercial ships
WINGS AS SAILS - The race is on the develop alternative technology for shipping, amid a rush of ideas to get to zero carbon. But few appear to be pushing rotary sails as a possibility, allied to such clean tech as solar power. Archinaute and the Elizabeth Swan seem to be the only contenders.

- DELTAMARIN, BAR TECH AND CARGILL PUT WIND IN THE SAILS OF THE NEXT GENERATION CARGO SHIPS
ABOUT BAR TECHNOLOGIES - With an impressive heritage, having originally spun out from the former British, America’s Cup Team, BAR Tech provide a wide range of design and engineering consultancy services with a focus on 4 key sectors; Workboats and Commercial Vessels, Shipping, Special Projects and Leisure Marine and Yachts.
BAR Technologies offer a cohesive team of world lead naval architects and optimisation specialists; fluid dynamists; mechanical, structural and composite engineers; control strategy and system specialists; they offer data and simulation engineers with access to the latest commercial knowledge, using bespoke in-house design tools.
BAR Technologies originally entered this market to challenge themselves to incorporate their broad knowledge of naval architecture, simulation, CFD and patented IP into a superior Crew Transfer Vessel for taking technicians to work on Wind Turbines (amongst other uses). The aim being to improve seakeeping and help make a green energy sector even greener by dramatically reducing fuel requirements.
BIG RIGID SAILS - The project will see BAR Technologies’ WindWings — large, solid wing sails that measure up to 45 meters in height — fitted to the deck of bulk cargo ships to harness the power of the wind and reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 30 per cent. The number of wing sails can be tailored to the size of the vessel and the route it will take. Hence, route optimisation is seen to be a key component of any transport system.
CONVENTIONAL CARGO CONTENDERS A list of the top ten fossil fueled giants that could benefit from solar and wind assistance. You may notice from the specification of these vessels that we are in the right ballpark for power to cargo ratio when comparing DWT to installed engine power:
ZERO CARBON RORO - This is a small roll-on roll-off ferry designed to carry 12 large vans, with passenger rooms below decks. She is a zero carbon design featuring twin wind generators that also add to thrust directly from the wind (like sails) and a full deck of solar panels that track the sun - including a battery store. The age of zero carbon shipping is dawning, with innovative designs like this expanding on the possibilities. Design Copyright © December 6 2019.

ASHINGTON & JAMDA - Sails as wings is not exactly new technology. Fleet operators have known about this for years, but only now the IMO is making the running, are ship designers being employed to change the way we deliver goods around the world.

AMERICAS CUP 2020 - BAR Technologies is a spin-off from Ben Ainslie Racing (BAR), the British team formed by Olympic and World Champion sailor Sir Ben Ainslie – was formed in 2016, making the design knowledge, technical skills and intellectual property developed for America’s Cup yacht racing available for the commercial world. BAR Tech helped Sir Ben Ainslie compete in the 2020 and 2021 events off the shore of Auckland, New Zealand, where the British sailor was unfortunately knocked out.
