Vindskip, a sailing vessel
Many designers, companies and manufacturers are making vehicles that use solar power or wind for movement. The goal is to make a vehicle that is eco-friendly and doesn’t make any pollution. As the result, we have many cars, bikes and similar vehicles that use clean energy. But we don’t have a ship that is eco-friendly. As you know, boats and ships use big engines that make a lot of pollution. Now, we can see a concept that may change this.
Lade AS, the design firm from Norway, presented their concept of an eco-friendly vessel. It is called Find skip. This vessel has a vertical body that acts like a big sail. The effectiveness is based on weather data and aerodynamic lift. It should use the wind with maximum efficiency. Also, this is a very big vessel, capable of transporting people and vehicles.
For now, this is just a concept, so there is no more information. But it is possible to make this vessel in reality. In the future, this will be the best and the greenest way of transportation. Beside it is effective, it has a very interesting design. We can say that there is no anything similar to this vessel. We can even call it the Titanic of the future.
Although, there are many benefits of this vessel, there are some possible drawbacks. One of them is speed. Maybe it cannot reach high speed, which will make travels longer. Because many people don’t have enough time and they want to get to their destination as quickly as possible, this vessel may need more improvement.
