Kite assisted propulsion research
A demonstration of the potential of kite propulsion as a means to reduce fuel consumption and hence GHG emissions from merchant ships through presenting:
- an improved model of the forces generated by a kite in dynamic flight,
- a simulation of kite forces coupled with required propeller thrust and engine performance to predict fuel consumption and savings,
- case-study application for a vessel on a trans-Pacific route,
- a formal safety assessment to identify potential hazards in the practical use of kites as a means of auxiliary propulsion.

Abstract

A demonstration of the potential of kite propulsion as a means to reduce fuel consumption and hence GHG emissions from merchant ships through presenting:
- an improved model of the forces generated by a kite in dynamic flight,
- a simulation of kite forces coupled with required propeller thrust and engine performance to predict fuel consumption and savings,
- case-study application for a vessel on a trans-Pacific route,
- a formal safety assessment to identify potential hazards in the practical use of kites as a means of auxiliary propulsion.
