Mitsubishi bulker to debut BAR Technologies’ WindWings in 2023

Mitsubishi Corporation’s 2017-built panamax bulk carrier Pyxis Ocean will be the first vessel retrofitted with BAR Technologies’ wind propulsion technology WindWings, on a charter with development partner, Cargill.

Yara Marine Technologies will deliver two WindWings sails as part of a collaboration launched in 2019 between Cargill and MC Shipping’s Singapore branch – the shipping arm of Mitsubishi Corporation – with the deployment expected at the beginning of 2023.
