Windcoop operates container ships under sail, propelled for the most part by the energy of the wind , which is inexhaustible, clean and free. These innovative vessels contribute to the development of less polluting transport. Our ambition is for it to be owned by a host of shipowners wishing to accelerate the transition of maritime transport. Our first sailing freighter will begin construction in 2023.
Structured as a cooperative, Windcoop offers everyone, individuals, companies and communities, the opportunity to become a member in order to offer a new model of shipping company. This militant project will allow all stakeholders to develop a low-carbon transport model, concerned about people and the environment.
The Windcoop vessel, 85 meters long, has been optimized to achieve the best sailing performance.
It will be operational on our first France-Madagascar line, which will open in 2025.
This Windcoop freighter will be the first of a long series. We want to develop a fleet of low-carbon ships to meet the challenges of international transport.
