The 4 automated and reefable mushy wing sails might be related to a routing system developed individually. A brand new firm, Ayro, has been set to as much as develop the Oceanwings.
The ship specs are complicated, contemplating the technical necessities dictated by the Ariane 6 launcher’s transport but additionally the nautical constraints associated to entry to the port of Pariacabo in French Guiana.
The vessel, whose launching is deliberate for 2022, might be inbuilt a European building web site that is still to be chosen. Canopée might be operated by the three way partnership Alizés
