Richard Sauter the founder of Sauter Zero Carbon Design, is showing a way forward for commercial ships of the future. Called Black Magic, she is a 4,000 ton solar hybrid vessel that claims to reduce GHG by 75 to 100 per cent by capturing energy from the sun, wind and waves. The unusual wave piercing pentamaran hull is powered by several propulsion methods solely or in combinations. A large solar cell area of 2,000 square meters allows the vessel to operate at her maximum speed of 16 kts. A high efficiency azimuth propulsion system drives counter rotating Contracted Loaded Tip (CLT) propellers. Wind propulsion produced by three pairs of fully rotational wing sails can propel the ships at 10 kts. Contributing to the low emission claims is the use of Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® exhaust treatment on the diesel generators of the diesel electric propulsion system. [More]
