acc wing voilier


Inside Alveole 12

ACCWing is a high performance flexible thick wing for all types of sailboats, including the largest ones. An ACCWing is lightweight and stowable with a relative simplicity of design, with few metal components. By accentuating the camber to its maximum, the lift is up to 2.5 times that of a conventional rig of the same surface. It comes in two different versions :

  • the Yachting version is made of sail fabric and composite parts, compatible with light headsails (Spinnaker, Gennaker, Code Zero…)
  • the telescopic Merchant Marine version, made of very durable composite panels.

    Sirehna, a subsidiary of Naval Group, joined the ACCWing project by bringing its expertise in naval system & plateform automation.

Airseas was founded in 2016 in Toulouse by two Airbus engineers, with the ambition of transferring their aeronautical expertise to develop Seawing, an automated kite system designed to tow ships using the power of the wind. Airseas has received an initial order from Airbus, followed by five orders from Japanese shipowner 'K' Line between 2019 and 2022. The company is based in Nantes since 2021, and Seawing is currently finalising its first tests on a Louis Dreyfus Armateurs ship, chartered by Airbus.

Anemoi Marine

Inside Alveole 12

Anemoi is committed to accelerating the maritime industry’s transition to zero emission shipping by delivering market-leading wind technology. Rotor Sails, modern mechanical sails, were first installed on a vessel over 100 years ago. Through research and innovation, Anemoi have reimagined the technology for commercial use on modern ships to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions by 5-30%. Our proven technology has been uniquely designed to work alongside complex vessel operations, making it suitable for most ship types as retrofit and newbuild. As other energy-saving devices and alternative fuels become market-ready, Rotor Sails can also be used in conjunction to achieve enhanced environmental benefits.

Founded in 2018 by Marc Van Peteghem, AYRO is a French industrial company that designs, manufactures and delivers Oceanwings®, a wind propulsion system dedicated to the decarbonization of maritime transport. Our technology is an automated, lowerable and patented wing sail which enables the hybridization of the new build and retrofit vessels, saving up to 45% of fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The wingsail has a unique design, with a two-element aerodynamic profile, offering unmatched aerodynamic lift with limited drag. The advantages of our system are numerous: optimized weight, small deck space and simplicity in its structure allowing a quick installation on ships. All of these elements will support a wind range of commercial vessels in their technological transition.
