German inflation hits 15-year record of 3.3 per cent in JuneHamburg  - Six months after the first freighter put to sea drawn by a giant kite, a German company said Thursday that the invention could "realistically" reduce a ship's fuel use by 15 per cent.

Enthusiastic proponents say that the computerized SkySails system could usher in a new age of wind power in commercial shipping, although the main power still comes from the ship's engine. Because of high oil prices, even small savings are valuable to ship-owners.

A 90-metre coastal freighter, the Michael A, was retro-fitted with one of the kites at the end of last year and a purpose-built kite vessel, the Beluga SkySails, set off in March on a two-month maiden voyage to Venezuela, the United States and Norway.
