CERULEAN

PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT

Nicknamed the “Toyota Hilux of the seas”, CERULEAN is a line of simple, robust and sober cargo sailboats designed to transport materials and essential products between the islands of the South Pacific.


The sailing ship is a cargo ship that can be loaded and unloaded autonomously thanks to its hydraulic crane on deck, and its rigging has been adapted to maneuver large areas of sails with a reduced crew.


To ensure a minimum service speed of 8 knots, in addition to the wind propulsion provided by the 680 m2 of sails, the ship is equipped with a diesel propulsion engine. The latter will also recharge batteries to provide electrical power during navigation under sail and at berth.


For this CERULEAN cargo sailboat project (launch year 2022), whose architecture is designed by VPLP Design, Alwena shipping carried out in 2021 the study, optimization and validation of the propulsion, electrical generation and energy storage systems on board the vessel.
