Let’s talk about low emission transport

Updated: Jan 13


We all talk about vessels running on wind power and wave energy, and solar panels supplying electricity. There have been some major developments in these areas, and in this blog we will share some examples.


Sweden’s car carrier (designed by Wallenuis Marine) now runs mainly by wind power. CO2 emission will be reduced by 90% with this new technology. It operates using tall rigs made of steel and composite materials which turn 360 degrees to catch the wind in an optimal way. The sails are 80 meters long- which is twice the height of masts on the largest conventional sailing vessels today. It’s massive!


It will take the vessel about 12 days to sail across the Atlantic and can carry 7000 cars on board. For more details, the article is here




Meanwhile in Norway, not only did they make an electric ferry, they made it Self-driving. We are truly living in the future we once talked about! Read more by clicking here.
