Zéphyr & Borée designs disruptive cargo ships fitted with wing-sails to reduce the shipping industry carbon footprint
90% of global trades are done by 50 000 cargo ships emitting 1 billion tons of CO2 a year. How to deal with this issue? Wind energy is part of the solution. The Challenge is to master this energy in a simple and efficient way. At Zéphyr & Borée, we have designed cargo ships fitted with disruptive wing-sails enabling to greatly reduce the fuel consumption. Wind is free and unlimited, our technology is already proven and allows massive carbon savings. Let's use the wind again.
