What they said about us ?
Hellenic Shipping News
“We know that the power of the wind, even if it is not always available, can make a significant contribution to GHG-free ship propulsion and ship design. Wind propulsion systems can play a significant auxiliary role in providing substantial propulsive energy and, in some cases, wind could be used for main propulsion requirements (…)” Laurent Leblanc, Senior Vice President Technical & Operations at Bureau Veritas
The Maritime Executive
“The EU has forecast that up to 10,700 wind propulsion installations could be in place by 2030, and the UK Clean Maritime Plan forecasts that wind propulsion technologies will become a £2billion ($2.8 billion) a year segment, with approximately 30,000 installations (equivalent to 40-45 percent market penetration) by the 2050s.” Gavin Allwright, IWSA Secretary General
“We are very pleased to be able to issue this AiP to AYRO for its Oceanwings 3.6.3 system. An AiP can help build confidence in shipowners and operators by demonstrating that new technologies can not only help them improve sustainability, but follow well established, trusted and independent standards.” Hasso Hoffmeister, Senior Principal Engineer at DNV GL – Maritime.
On March 25th, 2021, AYRO was awarded with the 2020-2021 “Ocean Innovation Trophy“ in the category “shipping decarbonation using wind propulsion”, organized by the French bank Banque Populaire Grand Ouest (BPGO).
Mer & Marine
“Thanks to its 360 degree rotation ability, [The Oceanwings] allows the adaptation of the angle of attack of the wingsail no matter the pace of the ship. The camber and the twists’ adjustment allows on the other hand the power adjustment.

“The standard service speed will be reduced from current conventional vessels. We will not be able to tackle the climate challenge that is already upon us without thinking differently about how we plan and operate supply chains.” Erik Noeklebye, EVP & COO Shipping Services.
“We are pleased to see Bureau Veritas’s continuous involvement and support in innovation and in the decarbonization of shipping with the release of these new rules. These technical guidelines will help us in the development of our Oceanwings and their application on board cargo vessels.” Ludovic Gérard, CEO AYRO
