"Solar wings" the eco-friendly vessel

These photos show the working designs for hybrid marine power vessels called "solar wings" developed by an Australian company. These special solar panels, can also act as sails.

The company's vessels, which range from commercial craft to private recreational boats, utilise solar cells that are set into flat panels. These panels automatically reposition themselves to draw optimal power from the sun and the wind. Some versions of the craft include internal combustion engines - not exactly eco-friendly technology.
