Shipping And Travel
USING the power of the wind
Sail cargo enterprises all over the world have shown the viability of sail cargo in small numbers, carrying highly valued cargo. EcoClipper presents an ambitious logistics system which will serve global shipping lines. EcoClipper vessels range from retrofit projects to new, purpose-built ships. The rigs and design differ depending on their respective shipping lines.
Sail cargo ship “De Tukker” is the first vessel to join the EcoClipper fleet. The vessel will require a retrofit and will begin providing trade and passenger travel under sail on the North Sea in the first half of 2022.
EcoClipper is in the final phase of planning for a new prototype design: the ‘EcoClipper500’. This will be the first of a series of ships which will carry up to 36 trainees, 12 passengers and 500 tonnes of cargo across the globe. The team has been working on innovative technologies and specifications that advance the sustainability, construction and use of a wind-driven, sailing ship.
