We are WingTek™ – an ambitious green maritime technology start-up, developing wind auxiliary propulsion systems and piloting the future of commercial shipping.
To revolutionise the deployment of Wind Auxiliary Propulsion to the global shipping fleet. Wind power is the only fuel-saving technology for ships that offers double-digit percentage savings and yet still be retrofittable to the majority of the existing global commercial fleet.
To dramatically accelerate maritime decarbonisation with the deployment of our mass-manufacturable wind auxiliary propulsion system, reducing fuel use, costs, pollution and CO2 emissions for ship owners, ship operators and the planet.
Economic, regulatory, and reputational pressures are building for the global shipping industry to reduce its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has set a global target for shipping to reach Net Zero by 2050.
Therefore, hybrid solutions will be required and wind auxiliary propulsion (WAP) is the key renewable technology in ship decarbonisation.
The WingTek Wingsail™ uses unique, retrofit, sea-proven designs derived from Walker Wingsails and when combined with the very latest in smart technology, offer the highest potential fuel savings and environmental benefits whilst supporting maritime collision regulations.
More than 15-20% average annual fuel savings are possible with optimal vessel routing.
