Shipping’s High-Tech Future

B9 330 ft.

Valemax bulk carrier 1,188 ft.

The B9’s mechanically controlled masts rotate to catch available wind

There’s no rigging to get in the way of cargo handling

The ship is powered by 60 % thrust from wind and 40 % thrust from the engine fueled by biomethane gas

The Cutty Sark, built in 1869, was one of the last clipper ships. The ship’s hull measured 212 feet and the height of the sail was 152 feet. She wasn’t retired until 1954.

Conventional bulk carriers like the Valemax run on bunker fuel, increasingly the target of environmental rules.
