Key advantages

The key advantages of the Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution are:

  • Fuel costs can be reduced typically by 5% to 20% without lowering the operating speed of the vessel.
  • Rotor Sail operation is highly automated and it can be controlled by the crew from the bridge.
  • The solution has been tested in co-operation with leading classification societies to ensure that it is robust, durable and safe to use.
  • Rotor sails can be installed in new vessels or they can be refitted to an existing ship.

The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution is the first commercially available auxiliary wind propulsion solution with a proven track record of successful operation.
