Automated inflatable sail system installed for the first time on a merchant ship

(ORDO NEWS) — The French company Michelin installed a prototype folding inflatable wing sail on the MN Pelican container ship.

Installing the system, Michelin says, will reduce fuel consumption by 20 percent by harnessing wind power.

The new WISAMO (Wing Sail and Mobility) 100 square meter sail will be tested in real conditions when the ship will sail between the English port of Poole and the Spanish Bilbao.
