Wind Propulsion: Barriers, Drivers and Perception Forum

It was another busy London International Shipping Week (LISW) in September and RINA played its part by hosting the ‘Wind Propulsion: Barriers, Drivers and Perception Forum’ at our Northumberland Street headquarters on 14th September.

Held in association with the International Windship Association (IWSA), the event was an opportunity to discuss pathways forward for the wind-assisted propulsion sector in light of IMO’s revised decarbonisation strategy, new EU maritime regulations and other developments.

IWSA secretary, Gavin Allwright, kicked off proceedings with the results of a recent survey to gauge awareness and perception of wind propulsion solutions. It was followed by a roundtable discussion of the various drivers and barriers influencing uptake of the technology.
