The French company Neoline has just developed a new container ship with sails which saves between 80 and 90% of fuel for a crossing of the Atlantic.
Although the speed is limited to 11 knots against 15 knots for oil boats, companies like Renault, Manitou or Bénéteau have opted for this solution.
The container carrier is 136 meters long and has a capacity of 280 containers.
The first ship is scheduled for 2022.
