SAILS FOR THE AUXILIARY PROPULSION OF A VLCC TRADING ON THE NORTHERN EUROPE--PERSIAN GULF ROUTE

The paper considers the possibility of equipping a VLCC operating between Europe and the Persian Gulf with auxiliary sails in order to save fuel when winds are favourable. In unfavourable winds, the vessel proceeds under power. The estimated net earnings of the sail-equipped ship are compared with those for the same vessel without sails. Order from NSFI as No. 16287.
