Wind Propulsion Conference - Royal Institution of Naval Architects

BIMCO's Deputy Secretary General, Lars Robert Pedersen, will give the keynote address. 

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), in association with the International Windship Association (IWSA), will hold its 2nd Wind Propulsion Conference on 15 and 16 September.

The conference will have 15 high quality papers presented by leading experts from 10 countries in the fields of technology development, systems and vessel design, testing, innovation, business cases and finance.

Lars Robert Pedersen says: “Often, wind propulsion is either believed to be a thing of the past or some kind of hi-tech solution only useful for racing boats. The fact is that wind propulsion offers a free energy resource which can help merchant ships lower their energy bill and thus limit the cost for transition to a low carbon future. Wind propulsion may also improve a ship’s CII performance in the short term. Exploring how wind propulsion can benefit ship operations is an exercise worth doing for every shipowner.”

It will be possible to attend the event online as well as in person.
