Blue Nose

Container ships are now the most polluting population of ships on the planet. They alone are responsible for 1% of global CO2 emissions.

BlueNose aims to reduce their environmental impact by installing retrofit structures (replacement of thermal engine by electric engine) on these ships that allow fuel consumption reductions of 3-5% by improving the ship's aerodynamics.

The shape of these structures is generated thanks to an algorithm combining pressures from fluid mechanics with an iterative shape generation process.
