Auxiliary wind propulsion
Norsepower is a Finnish company that specializes in pioneering modern auxiliary wind propulsion for the global maritime industry. At Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo Europe, the company will showcase its Rotor Sail, which significantly reduces fuel costs and emissions, as confirmed by independent third-party verifiers such as ABB, NAPA and Lloyd’s Register.
Since it was established in 2012, Norsepower has installed its Rotor Sails onboard eight vessels, including the latest installation on CLdN’s MV Delphine. The company also has upcoming installations on Alcyone (a medium-range tanker), MV Koryu, a MOL in-service capesize bulk carrier and two LNG-powered, wind-assisted new-build CO2 carriers for Northern Lights JV.
The Rotor Sail has been used by customers for over eight years and has proved to be a low-maintenance, easy-to-use, reliable fuel-saving technology that is supporting the decarbonization of the shipping industry.
Shipowners, charterers and shipyards around the world have been convinced of the benefits of the Norsepower rotor sail. These entities are now taking steps, such as fleet-wide negotiations, to harness the technical and economic feasibility of the Norsepower Rotor Sail.
