Through its innovative research Beyond the sea has set itself two objectives, a major economic challenge coupled with a major environmental challenge:
- Become world leaders in the design and complete creation of kite traction solutions for ships of all sizes (direct creation of over 600 jobs in France over 10 years)
- Reduce the world’s commercial vessels carburant consumption by 20% and CO2, and the NOx & SOx emissions associated with maritime transport (target reduction of -50%).
Beyond the sea will demonstrate a turnkey solution (kite + launcher + management system + autopilot + route optimization + installation + training + assistance) to equip any motor vessel with a kite (fishing boats, merchant ships and mega yachts)
These facilities will be divided into different ranges depending on the size of the target vessels.
