Green Cargo Ships




These images are of Wallenius Wilhelmsen's concept vessel Orcelle; a proposed cargo ship that harnesses wind, wave and sun to navigate the oceans. The press release doesn't say much but according to this site they could start building ships that incorporate these design ideas soon. That would be something to see.


Tangentially, the site where I found the big drawing, and that I link above, is involved with green ocean travel as well. They are 'Solar Navigation - World Electric Navigation Challenge'. They want to circumnavigate the globe in a custom build solar powered catamaran. Sounds fun. If you have some extra cash they could use your help.
