Peixe Verde Ideas Contest

SkySails has won the Peixe Verde Ideas Contest in Spain. Peixe Verde is an organi-
zation that was founded by fish-trawler owners two years ago for the purpose of finding technical solutions that can reduce fuel consumption aboard their vessels and for preserving the Spanish fishing industry whose very existence is threatened by high fuel costs.
The goal of the contest, which is organized by the CETPEC Fisheries Technology Center and sponsored by the IDAE Institute for Diversification and Energy Savings and the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science, is to generate innovative ideas for reducing the energy consumption of fishing vessels.
