Yara Birkeland

The tail-end of next year will bring the launch of the Yara Birkeland containership. As Mark Millar discusses in this post, the Yara is no ordinary containership. It will be the first fully electric, autonomous vessel of its kind, and with it, Millar predicts the rise of the robot. He speculates that by the end of the decade, unmanned electric cargo ships will be a regular sight on the world’s oceans. While actual images remain under wraps, here the vessel’s manufacturers have imagined and rendered it in full 3D for you.
