DEVELOPMENT

The SkySails Power system is based on the SkySails technology that is
being used in the shipping industry to provide added wind propulsion for cargo ships

SkySails technology already has

- an automated control system

- an automated launch and recovery system

- the largest kites available worldwide for industrial application

- proven and tested rope technology with integrated data and power cable

The SkySails base technology has been developed for offshore use and has been
proven and tested in this environment. Some 50 million euros have been invested
in developing the SkySails technology to date.


The development of the SkySails Power system will be carried out in 3 steps:

1. Functional Model (55 kW)
2. Prototype (1 MW)
3. Product (3.5 MW) and first test wind farm
