Smart Green Shipping Alliance (SGSA) pioneers Maritime Renewables (MR) by combining 21st century technology transferred from yacht racing, renewables, F1, aerospace, automotive, novel materials with traditional naval architecture.
SGSA created FASTRIGS - automated, rugged, freestanding, modular, light, low cost sailing rigs by combining existing techs and novel materials in innovative ways. The system requires no additional crew costs or risks, and leads to no on-deck clutter impeding access to holds.
Fully optimised in small/medium size new build ships and in combination with off-the-shelf biofuelled engines immediate 100 per cent renewable propulsion is possible.
FASTRIGS retrofitted to existing vessels save ~20% fuel, fitted during regular dry docking without losing critical seadays.
SGSA has designed a complementary fuel saving analysis and operation support tool, TRADEWIND, developed with Met Office from their renewables and aviation solutions. Research with ship owners, operators and ports has identified and addressed market and logistics challenges.
Through transferring knowledge from renewables SGSA has created complementary new business opportunities in MR finance that integrates an operation and maintenance (O&M) service - RE:Surge.
