Using a wind turbine as the main power source for a ship allows to design zero emission mechanically propelled vessels as efficient as present combustion engine powered ones, provided we aim at reasonable cruising speeds. It also provides an unlimited range of operation, a full autonomy, without any need for harbor infrastructure or energy supply from the continent. Project holder: engineer from Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures (Centrale Paris) aged 59, convinced since a long time of the interest of renewable energies, now running this innovative project for zero emission navigation.
