Wind Energy and Container Ships

The main focus of this article is the development and use of clean renewable energy sources – wind energy, on ships. The main goal is the diversity of energy sources and the reduce of environmental pollution, hoping that this will ensure future energy security of supply.The author propose to install wind turbines, kite which generates electricity and kite used for propulsion on a port-container. The main reason of this article is to try to show a modality for reducing ship pollution and the quantity of fuel used, that mince, to reduce the price of transportation and a method of saving money. As a result of research the author discovered that is more convenient to use vertical axe wind turbines like French model Statoeolien GSE 4 comparing with a normal wind turbine with orizonthal axe, to use the mixed propulsion motor-kite then only a diesel motor, and a kite with generates electricity than a simple wind turbine. Wind energy is a very good solution to global energy problems. It is considered the cheapest source of energy. The kites which generate electricity are revolutionizing wind turbines.
