Using kites to move modern cargo ships.

Sounds really crazy, but some companies are using them already. Kite surfers; know the strength that a kite have. The strength of these depends on the air receiving and the kite size, for example, a 12 square meters kite is considered big and one of 17 meters would be enormous, just to be used in light wind conditions or by heavy people.

Can you imagine the power that would have a 160 square meter kite? This is the monster kite the MS BELUGA SKYSAILS is using, a carrying metal ship.

Of course that it combines the kite with the motors power because in modern times is very difficult to rely only in the wind, but when the wind is favorable, it can mean up to 40% of fuel savings. This is a great idea to reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.

Considering that 90% of world trade is carried by ship, you can imagine the number of ships which sail the seas with their engines full power trying to meet their deadlines.

Congratulations to MS BELUGA SKYSAILS for this initiative and hopefully more shipping companies will follow you.
