Abstract: This paper relates to the ship having tethered wind turbine system for power generation and emergency rescue passenger space for passengers to save their life during an emergency situation. It is a lighter system that rotates about a horizontal axis in response to sea breeze and wind produced during sailing is used to generating electrical energy. This electrical energy is transferred to the ship for immediate use. Helium (an inert non-reactive lighter than air) sustains the Air Rotor which ascends over stern deck to an altitude for best wind and its rotation with the sailing causes the Magnus effect. This provides additional lift, keeps the device stabilized, and keeps it positioned within a very controlled and restricted location. Commercial ships will use this electrical energy for their ship auxiliary power system additional to their fuel. Virtually all emission from the vessel including NOx, SOx and CO2, are reduced by using power generated from this turbine. Whenever, the ship is at risk, this Helium filled gas turbine can raise the emergency rescue passenger space and save passengers.
