Eco Marine Power gets ready for EnergySail commercial production

24 Jan 2018

Japanese technology firm Eco Marine Power (EMP) has signed a patent license agreement with rigid sail production company Teramoto Iron Works relating to its EnergySail® and Aquarius MRE® technologies.

The development paves the way to full commercial production of EMP’s technologies after sea trials.

The EnergySail is an automated rigid sail device that enables ships to utilise the power of the wind to reduce fuel consumption and lower vessel emissions.

It can also be fitted with flexible marine-grade solar panels or other devices and used to charge batteries or the electrical power fed into a ships power system.

Alternatively, an EnergySail array can be incorporated into EMP's Aquarius MRE (Marine Renewable Energy) solution.

“I am proud that our company is at the forefront of bringing the EnergySail towards commercial production and that we are able to demonstrate again, our ability to manufacture high quality and specialised solutions for shipping,” said Yoshitaka Teramoto, President of Teramoto Iron Works.
