Union Maritime and BAR Technologies join forcesUnion Maritime is collaborating with BAR Technologies, the developer of WindWings, to deploy wind technology across its fleet.
 
WindWings is a rigid sail technology that uses wind propulsion to deliver average daily savings of 1.5 tonnes of fuel per wing and 6 tonnes of CO2 per wing on typical global routes. Union Maritime is also working with Norsepower for rotor sails on smaller vessels. Wind propulsion will be deployed on a total of 34 Union Maritime newbuild vessels, including 14 LR2s, 12 chemical tankers, and 8 MRs. Union Maritime is also working with BAR Technologies’ shareholders on a strategic equity investment in the company.
