The incredible cargo vessel with a hull so huge it acts as a SAIL: Innovative design could reduce fuel needed by half

A Norwegian firm designed the vessel, which could achieve fuel savings of 60 per cent while reducing emissions by 80 per cent

The Vindskip by Lade AS, uses a hull designed to act as a giant airfoil, which helps harness a force akin to lift to pull the ship along

The firm says the design could eventually be used for giant cruise ships

It is a return to the days of wind-powered cargo ships - but with a very modern twist.

A Norwegian firm has unveiled plans for a radical new cargo ship with a hull so large it acts as a sail.

The Vindskip, designed by Lade AS, uses a hull designed to act as a giant airfoil.

A Norwegian firm has unveiled plans for a radical new cargo ship with a hull so large it acts as a sail. The Vindskip, designed by Lade AS, uses a hull designed to act as a giant airfoil

The makers of the wind-powered hybrid merchant ship say that while engines are still needed, their design could achieve fuel savings of 60 per cent while reducing emissions by 80 per cent.

The design has a large opening for cargo, and lifeboats that drop from a ‘lip’ around the top of the boat if needed.

Its makers say that while engines are still needed, their design could achieve fuel savings of 60 per cent while reducing emissions by 80 per cent

The firm also says the design, which draws inspiration from the Aerospace industry to create the 'symmetrical airfoil' hull, could eventually be used for giant cruise ships.

The company claims the airfoil helps harnesses a force akin to aerodynamic lift, pulling the ship along.

It would use a liquefied natural gas-powered electrical generator for the remainder of its energy requirements and to get going from a standstill.

Lade says it hopes to license the design to ship builders around the world.

Last month, the world's largest solar boat - the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar - docked in London as part of its epic scientific discovery along the Gulf stream.

The eco-friendly boat's crew of nine was collecting data on the sea and atmosphere between the United States and Norway as part of an investigation into climate change.

The impressive vessel crossed the Atlantic in a record breaking 22 days earlier this year when it travelled from Las Palmas, Canary Islands to Saint Martin in the Caribbean.

The catamaran, which is a scientific research platform for the University of Geneva (UNIGE), has a top speed of 14 knots and has 809 solar panels that can generate up to 480 kWh on a sunny day.

讓人想起老式不插電的煤炭熨斗

現今是很難有個定論 這種前衛創新的設計 將會不會是明日的貨輪設計典範之一
  然而長途海運 充滿許多不可知的海上問題 
 風平浪靜 可以靠風向達到節省燃料的優點 
  然而順風而行 有時會有偏離不易掌控的航線問題 

既然是風帆的作用 成之與此 亦可能敗於此
 惡劣的海象天候 有如不能收起的風帆 那是相當危險

. 讓中華民國永遠存在.
