Cargo ship sails to Copenhagen

Cargo ship sails to Copenhagen

04-08-2014 16:00:00

The 32 meter long sailing ship "Tres Hombres" docked at Copenhagen yesterday. The special feature of the sailing ship is that it acts as the world's only cargo ship without an engine. With it is a cargo consisting of French wine, thus being delivered to Copenhagen utterly without any CO2 emissions.

By using sails instead of engine, about one ton of CO2 is saved on the trip from Douarnenez in France, where the ship was loaded with 30 tons of wine on 11 July. The 13 French winemakers, who have teamed up to provide the equivalent of the contents of two common containers using only the force of the wind.

The valuable cargo of biodynamic grown French wines will also be tasted at the restaurant Noma, which is the recipient of the cargo.

"Tres Hombres" is coming to Denmark again in mid-August, where it will arrive at Bornholm.
For those interested in language, the ship's name is Spanish for three men.
