The beyond the sea®'s project aims to develop a specialised kite technology to tow ships, using wind as an energy.
Yves Parlier, a sailor internationally well-known for his sporting results in most prestigious offshore regattas, has been developing with his team, since 2014, a resolutely innovative project in the purest respect of the environment. This kite traction project, straight from Kitesurfing technology, aims to use the wind as unique source of energy. By using the potential of French researchers, we are building an extraordinary team of competent and motivated women and men. We also develop strategic research partnerships with prestigious engineering schools, Kite professionals, and sailors, all focused on responsible Innovation. The scope of the kite towing will be wide: from Merchant Navy to pleasure craft, or fishing boats. Beyond the Sea ® will open up new opportunities for all those who practice the sea. This solution will be revolutionary from environmental, safety and economic points of view, by combining multiple strengths that will make it an indispensable solution for ships of all sizes.
