With such large vessels? Are you serious? Wind powered Shipping? Unmanned Cargo Ships? Do you think that’s a good idea? We want to hear your opinions here at Texas Gobal Services. Thank you for sharing. The WWEA, World Wind Energy Association, and IWSA, International Wind Ship Association have teamed up to promote wind technology propulsion by the global shipping fleet. The WWEA will contribute with its experience in driving industry transition and taking advantage of the power of wind energy technology. The IWSA, in parallel, will continue to bring together all parties in the development of a wind-ship sector to shape industry and government attitudes and policies. “Collaborating with the WWEA team on joint projects enables IWSA to accelerate uptake of this abundantly available, free-to-use energy source into the maritime sector,” Gavin Allwright, IWSA Secretary General, said. “Shipping is certainly an area that will greatly benefit from the uptake of wind power and we look forward to working closely with IWSA to make that happen faster and at scale,” Stefan Gsänger, WWEA Secretary General, said.

Unmanned Cargo Ships? Is this a good idea?
Industry bodies in China, led by HNA Technology Logistics Group and China Classification Society (CSS), have established what is now known as the unmanned cargo ship development alliance. Supported by experts from the ABS, DNV GL, Chinese ship and Marine Engineering Design Institute, Shanghai Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute, among others, the alliance is expected to have a profound impact on the industry.
