A container ship design using both wind power and LNG for its energy needs has won approval in principle from classification society Bureau Veritas tells an article from Ship and Bunker.

About The Design

The Trade Wings 2,500 design has six Oceanwings sails and an LNG powerplant, marine architects VPLP Design said in an emailed statement on Monday. The ship has a cargo capacity of 2500 TEU.

Bureau Veritas approved the design last week.


“Suitable to the short shipping operations or feedering in Europe, Central America, Caribbean Islands, and China, the Trade Wings 2500 can also operate on transatlantic trades”, the company said in a statement.


“The design minimizes time in port operations, as maneuverability is increased with the Pods, and hatch the coverless design further speeds up Cargo Operations”

The design can save as much as cargo operations and reduce CO2 emissions up to 35% in a comparable conventional ship.
