This paper describes the integrated performance prediction and weather routing tool developed by Fraunhofer CML for the VINDSKIP® wind assisted hybrid propulsion concept. The performance prediction approach utilizes a constraint optimization routine to balance aerodynamic and hydrodynamic forces to determine the total resistance while satisfying the equilibrium condition for three degrees of freedom. For the weather routing an implementation of the A*-algorithm on a dynamic grid is utilized, including avoidance of land masses and harsh weather according to IMO guidelines. The results of the performance prediction and weather routing are presented.
