Bluewater Engineering is a company determined to achieve Net Zero by 2050 by contributing highly impactful carbon reduction technologies. The Skytug project is our current sole focus, aiming to bring significant primary wind propulsion to the whole trans-oceanic shipping sector.
SKYTUG is a kite propelled tug devised to provide high thrust wind propulsion to large ships, primarily bulk
carriers and tankers from Handy up to Capesize and beyond. It is a novel approach to wind propulsion
technology, which aims to overcome commercial barriers to adoption by offering a towing service paid for at the
point of use. In creating a propulsion system separate from the ship, Skytug is also freed from spatial design
constraints, and can carry sufficient kites to provide up to 100% propulsion and achieve the economies of scale
required to compete directly with fossil fuels.
