FRENCH 'GREEN' AWARD FOR SAIL SYSTEM

Friday, March 26, 2021 

French company Ayro has received the 2020-2021 'Ocean Innovation Trophy' in the category 'shipping decarbonation using wind propulsion', organised by the Banque Populaire Grand Ouest (BPGO).

This award, handed over by an environmentally committed French bank, is in recognition of the Oceanwings capacity to contribute to the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. It strengthens Ayro in its development and integration process towards hybrid wind propulsion systems for commercial vessels.

Ayro Chairman and co-founder Marc Van Peteghem said: "This is with great honour and as a sign of encouragement that we receive this Trophy from a jury of experts especially involved in maritime and technological innovations. The Oceanwings is the result of more than 6 years of research and development. With a dedicated and environment friendly team, we are convinced that shipping decarbonation is essential and that the solution will have to bear on wind propulsion systems.”
