Japanese transportation company, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd, commonly known as “K” Line, recently announced the installation of the automated kite system “Seawing”.

Developed by Airbus SE subsidiary, AirSeas, Seawing is fixed to the bow of the vessel and operated from the bridge. Seawing harnesses wind power to assist in propulsion power for the vessel.

The Seawing system will be closely monitored for two years to assess the performance of the innovative technology and to ascertain if the bulk carrier can reduce emissions by more than 20%, about 5,200 tons of CO2 each year.

The Seawing works by combining aeronautical know-how with maritime technology to create a major landmark in the industry. A simple switch on the bridge opens the system that then collects essential meteorological and oceanic data in real-time. Seawing analyses this data and proceeds to optimize the performance of the vessel along with ensuring maximum safety.
