FAQ

Is it possible to install OceanWings® as a retrofit solution?

OceanWings® system has been designed with a pedestal interface comparable to a cargo crane so as to enable retrofit projects without requiring dry dock installation (possible with ship remaining afloat).

Is OceanWings® reefable or only furlable?

OceanWings® are reefable and furlable (the aft flap can be lowered while keeping the first element hoisted).

Will OceanWings company be able to provide real-time 24/7 routing to the shipowner and the ship during transit, possibly through an external router?

OceanWings® technology comes with an on-board routing system through an external router that will advise crew on the best routes for maximizing savings.

Class approval status

On February 15, 2021, OceanWings was awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) for its OceanWings® wind assisted propulsion system for ships from DNV GL. OceanWings® is also being approved upon at AIP stage by Bureau Veritas.

Precautions against excessive wind conditions

Wind operating window is defined, together with an automatic release system in case of excessive wind conditions. Constant strain gauges measurements can also trigger the automatic release system based on actually measured loads.

Is it possible to tilt OceanWings® in order to reduce the air draft?

Yes, depending on the operational constraints (airdraft, cargo operation), tilt can be required. OceanWings company is developing a system as optional in order to tilt OceanWings® when needed.

What is the maximum possible height in the future?

The more industrialized model is Oceanwings® with a total surface of 363 sqm. However we are considering larger wingsails for specific projects when relevant. Wingsails featuring a height larger than 50m are considered not relevant for maritime transportation.

Anticipated lifetime of the wingsail sailcloth material

Preventive maintenance to be planned every 5 to 10 years to ensure optimal use of the wingsail.

Are the systems Ex-proof?

ATEX can be added as an option.
