What is KNARR™?
This simplified airship freight system involves very little infrastructure to make wind energy easily accessible everywhere – leading the way in greener, more efficient transport of heavy goods.

Making the most out of nature’s energy sources, the KNARR™ airship – fueled by solar cells – finally allows the transport of wind turbines to be carbon neutral.
The KNARR™ initiative demonstrates that designers can have a full-scale effect on our society’s issues. By saving fuel and money and eliminating redundance, our approach brings together the general public and the hard industry into a new, brighter future.
By overcoming design limitations, streamlining wind turbine transport and efficiently pairing the re-emerging airship industry with wind turbine manufacturers in need of leaner transport processes, KNARR™ proves to be one one of the most ambitious design projects today.
The KNARR™ system
Not only envisioning the aircraft design, but also its use, we defined scenarios for the transport of wind turbine parts, from production site to installation location.
Using all our design tools to communicate, we designed storyboards to convey our ideas to the different stakeholders involved in the transport process.
