Jospa has patented a unique wave-powered Tug (no fuel, no emissions, autonomous), delivering massive bollard pull. It excels where speed is not vital. Multiple applications – cleaning ocean plastics, transporting masses of water, safety at sea, holding platforms in position, reducing mooring load on offshore wind. It cuts costs and pollution so much that shippers may use it to move low-value dry bulk goods. Designed for mass production, mainly made of recycled tyres, flexible, largely submerged and with automatic storm defence and re-set, it is highly survivable. At TRL4, trade partners sought. Ca €3M will bring it to TRL6, semi-commercial.
