ATLAS: decArbonaTed Logistic sAiling Software

Developing a cutting-edge tool that guarantees the best maritime trading routes to plan worldwide sailing-cargo ships’ operations, on a long term view, while ensuring maximum decarbonization and optimized delays of delivering.


ATLAS’s expectations from the acceleration programme are to:

  • We expect the organisation to give us necessary and useful tools to develop our project, support us on its development, and help acceleration program? us get credit and visibility for it.


TOWT – Transport à la voile

TOWT has been transporting goods on existing sailing vessels since 2011 and is thus familiar with the commercial and technical constraints of these vessels. With the construction of modern sail cargo ships with a carrying capacity of 1000T, TOWT is initiating a change of scale for the decarbonisation of the maritime sector. Operations are covering a wide range of destinations, thus various sailing routes. Technical and logistical
experts as well as a shipyard and specialised companies such as D-ICE for routing have worked with TOWT since the beginning of the sailing cargo ship project.

D-ICE Engineering

AD-ICE Engineering is a deeptech company with the ambition to contribute to 3 important challenges of the maritime industry: reduce its carbon footprint, improve the safety of life at sea and produce clean energy. To meet these goals, D-ICE has gathered a team of talented and highly skilled PhDs and Engineers with
competencies developed expertise in hydrodynamics, applied mathematics, robotics, control and software and system engineering. They have been working on weather routing applied to shipping since 2017. During those 4 last years, D ICE has worked on the algorithmic approach to create a tool that would work fine for ships with either total wind propulsion, hybrid propulsion and only mechanical propulsion.
