Wind Propulsion Forum 2021

17 February, free online forum

In cooperation with





The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is committed to the promotion of Wind Propulsion. The current use of alternative fuels and renewable energy sources within the shipping industry is still relatively scarce, so we are proud to present Wind Propulsion Forum in cooperation with the International Windship Association. This will serve as a great start to the other RINA alternative propulsion events such as our popular Wind Propulsion 2021 Conference.
