(WISAMO) Wind Sail Mobility

In a strange move, Michelin Tire Company has started to produce inflatable sails in order to reduce their fuel consumption and take a positive step in environmental pollution. The wind anvil dynamics project has been formed with the aim of increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of cargo ships by inflatable anvils. Of course, these types of sails do not replace the boat’s propulsion, but they can reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The sails automatically retract to the bottom of the boat deck when used automatically, like an open accordion when not needed. At the push of a button, the anvils are inflated as much as possible by an air compressor, filled with air, and raised to the required height by a telescopic mast to act like the wings of an airplane to create upward force. These anchors convert wind and airflow into forward thrust, reducing boat fuel consumption by 10 to 20 percent. According to the company Michelin’s double-sided anvil increases the performance of sails compared to conventional sails, especially when in the direction of wind flow. The WISAMO system is automatic and puts the anchors in the optimal position based on the conditions and direction of the wind, and like conventional sails, it does not require manpower or specialists to open it. The sails absorb and store the energy of the collar in their stormy and memorable windy weather.

The first electric tugboat in the United States

This tow boat, built by Crowley Maritime, is 25 meters long and has winch and tow rope for towing other boats, and the captain’s cabin is designed to have a 360-degree viewing angle. The eWolf has a 2.6 megawatt-hour battery that powers two 2100 kW Ramme electric motors. The engines will propel it to a maximum speed of 12 knots (22.2 km / h). The eWolf is set to replace a towing boat that consumes 30,000 gallons (113,500 liters) of diesel per year. This American tugboat is also equipped with two small diesel generators as a backup for safety in the middle of the sea.
The fastest water-land boat in the world
The product is made by the French company Iguana, a six-person military boat with a focus on emergency aid and rescue, which according to the manufacturer with a power of 900 hp is capable of reaching the sea knot equivalent to 9.101 km per hour. Available in Black. Structurally reinforced chassis and body, Ullman custom seats are designed for high-speed water safety. Like all amphibious boats, the iguana is slower on land and has a pair of wounds It is a Kevlar-reinforced rubber strap that is attached to the hull by two hydraulically retractable rods. On a cyclical ground Belts on any type of ground, such as sand, mud and rock, provide good adhesion and are deflected to maintain balance up to 40 degrees without losing stability. The iguana is in the water for just two minutes and is ready to go.

Non-sinking electric boat

The Italian-Spanish company Magonis is building its first boat with a hull length of 55 meters. The hull is a lightweight boat with a composite structure. The manufacturer has been developing the boat since 2017 and focused on the production process of the Light X Pro vacuum injection composite structure to increase the net weight of the hull to 335 kg. In addition to light weight, the body structure has non-sinking performance and long-term strength. The boat has a U-shaped sofa that can carry six people and can be turned into a three-person sunbathing area and a dining area with a telescopic table.
Buyers can choose from four types of electric motors, with the base model with a power of 4 kW for small lakes limiting the speed to 3.9 km / h. Those who want to go boating on the big lakes and the sea can use the 10 kW motor, which reaches a speed of 16.7 km / h. Batteries are between 5 and 23 kilowatt hours, traveling up to 111 kilometers.

Innovative catamaran in electric-solar boat

Austrian yacht maker Silent Yachts has unveiled the latest version of its electric solar catamaran class boats with a new design and a longer hull. Compared to the previous generation, more solar panels have been installed in this frame and for the forward auxiliary force of a fin Itkari in the form of a kite has been added to it. The 60 Silent model has a body length of 18 meters. The boat is powered by 42 solar panels at the top of the boat, producing a maximum power of 17 kW and a 286 kWh battery. Propulsion is provided by two 340 kW electric motors with a maximum speed of 20 knots equivalent to 37 km Provide on the clock. This boat is capable of traveling 161 km per day with solar energy alone. There is a device in a special box on the bow nose that can increase the performance of the boat like a supercharger, which includes a light and small kite and uses a 61 cm rig to act like a wing and in a few seconds by It is called an electric pump. Once the special winch and kite strings are in place, the kite can be placed on the boat supply and then raised above the water surface by the wind to a height of 120 meters to help propel the boat. At the time of flight, this kite has a surface of 13 square meters, which according to the manufacturer can produce about 10 times more force per square meter compared to normal sails and add about 9 kilometers per hour to the speed of the boat. This device provides more distance for the frame by reducing the pressure on electric motors. The set price for this yacht is equivalent to $ 6.2 million.
