Canopée: first hybrid industrial cargo ship powered by wind.

We are very proud to announce that our newbuild vessel Canopée is oufitted with her four ocean wings. We would like to thank all people involved in achieving this milestone.

We wish her safe and environmental friendly journeys!

Canopée has been fitted with its 4 Oceanwings® – automated, collapsible and patented vertical wings. With a height of 37m and a surface area of 363m2 each, these wings make Canopée the most advanced ship in the world in terms of hybrid wind propulsion since it has been entirely designed and optimised with this in mind. The wings consist of two flaps, one forward and one aft. These wings allow two main adjustments. Firstly, the angle of incidence of the wings, which turn 360 degrees in relation to the wind and the rear flap, which can pivot around the secondary mast to create a camber in relation to the front flap. The wings generate far more power than conventional sails or single-element wings.
