According to one company, flying a kite in the air like sailing boats on giant ships can save fuel. In this way, some of the wind power can push the ship to reduce its dependence on fuel.
Now a company called Airbus has successfully tested it on an Airbus cargo ship. The French company’s invention will be tested next month, with plans to install small and large sails of various designs on cargo ships.
According to conservative estimates, this will save 20% of fuel as well as reduce emissions of harmful gases. Next month, a 30 feet million 150-foot ships will be sailed into the 21st century. This aircraft carries large portions of Airbus aircraft to plants in different countries.
The parafoil kite has an area of 500 square meters which will be tied to the deck. But the interesting thing is that the whole system that activates it is automatic. That is, the sail opens on its own, moves forward, and reaches a height of 200 meters above the water level due to wind.
The entire test system is also automated, which can be easily installed on the largest ship in a few days.
