Complete automated kite traction system allowing to save 20% of fuel on average and to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.
Using the power of the wind to decarbonize global shipping.
Beyond the Sea by Yves Parlier has created the SeaKite, a complete automated kite traction system that is environmentally friendly. It consists of a kite, a launch mast, a turntable, sensors, a KiteBox (winches and autopilot) and a steering interface.
All this system will offer you autonomy, safety and fuel economy.
SeaKite is intended for commercial navigation, fishing, research, tankers, bulk carriers, container ships and liners.
20% reduction in average daily fuel consumption
The mixed engine and kite propulsion allows you to benefit from a significant and immediate reduction in your fuel consumption, around 20% on average. This means significant savings on your fuel costs, but also on carbon taxes.
Equipping your boat with the SeaKite is the assurance of a positive and quick return on investment.
A "plug & sail" system
The SeaKite system is designed for quick and easy installation. The time required for installation is minimized, reducing the amount of downtime on the boat.
Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
Maritime transport emits more than one billion tons of CO2 per year. Protecting the planet is nowadays essential, and the general public is more and more sensitive to the CSR approach of companies.
It is therefore urgent to decarbonize maritime transport, and legislation requires each ship to improve its energy efficiency coefficient by 2.5% per year from 2023.
The SeaKite system allows you to immediately reduce your greenhouse gas emissions and meet this ecological challenge!
An intelligent kite, just like the sailors
The AI guiding the SeaKite system constantly adapts the positioning of the sail in the wind to continuously optimize traction, performance and impact.
