Fishing boats sail ...

The company Avel Vor Technologies, whose boat Laboratory
is registered in Saint-Malo, is working on the development of an automatic control system for fishing boats to deploy their sails in addition to the engine. The rig is manufactured by Alunox society, based in Saint-Malo.

The aim of the project is to validate and quantify the advantage of sails in addition to engines in commercial ships and to develop an automatic command and control system maximised by a training course. The project covers both existing ships, which would require a refit, and new shipping built with the specified system from the outset.
Saint-Malo Agglomération has provided the project with 16,250 € in financial support.
