AYRO designs and manufactures the Oceanwings which is a wind hybridation propulsion system. It is an automated wingsail for the hybrid propulsion of ships. It is safe, simple and automated so that it does not require skills traditionally needed to sail. The Oceanwings reduce fuel consumption up to 45% and C02 emissions as much, enabling shipowners to decrease their OPEX and to comply with the coming environmental legislation. As part of the design of the wingsails and to support its customers on their projects, AYRO carries out engineering studies and is also able to provide its customers with aftersale maintenance and data support via routing system and control software of the Oceanwings.
