Reducing fuel consumption and emissions means harnessing all available technical advancements, including wind.

The efficiency of wind-assisted ship propulsion can be greatly enhanced by using modern science, materials and control technology. Several sail types developed in recent years have reached market maturity and are waiting to be utilized on a broader basis, from rotor sails to rigid or soft wing sails, and from ventilated foil systems to kites.
