Dear All,

Please find below a link to the EU commissioned report on: Study on the Analysis of Market Potentials & Market Barriers for Wind Propulsion Technologies for Ships

The study report, commissioned by the European Commission DG Climate Action last year, has been released. The CE Delft led team has covered a lot of ground and one of the headline conclusions include: “In 2030, the market potential could amount to around 3,700–10,700 installed systems on bulkers and tankers, associated with approximately 3.5–7.5 Mt CO2 savings and 6,500–8,000 direct and 8,500–10,000 indirect jobs.”

The International Windship Association will be working to facilitate and help to secure funding to assist with this scaling up of the sector in 2017-18 and I look forward to sharing further developments with you in the near future.

Further details or press release can be requested from CE Delft or from the study leaders Dagmar Nelissen (CE Delft) at or Jasper Faber (CE Delft)

Happy New Year


N.B. A very interesting report!

IMPORTANT! To be able to proceed, you need to solve the following simple math (so we know that you are a human) :-)

What is 12 + 15 ?
