Wind Challenger sail for MOL/Tata Steel bulker

The aim is to operate a new bulk carrier concept that reduces GHGE for Tata’s transport needs.


MOL has already developed with partners the Wind Challenger design. The vessel is equipped with a fixed, vertically telescoping hard sail. The first vessel is a 99,000dwt collier slated for delivery in 2022.


Peeyush Gupta, vice president, Supply Chain at Tata Steel, said: “The objective of the agreement is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the ocean transportation of raw materials for the production of steel. MOL group’s environmental vision plan sets a target of net zero emissions by 2050.”


Other shipping companies developing hard sail systems include K Line and Airseas SAS.
