Vessel: M/V Copenhagen
Scandlines operates the world's largest fleet of hybrid ferries, which combine diesel and battery power. Installation of one 30x5 Rotor Sail reduces the emissions of hybrid ferry M/V Copenhagen even further. Sailing between Rostock (DE) and Gedser (DK), the wind conditions are expected to be favorable for wind propulsion.
“By installing a Rotor Sail, we can reduce CO2 emissions on the Rostock-Gedser route by four to five per cent".

Vessel: VL Newbuild
Owner: Viking Line
On the 5th of April 2018 Viking Line has signed a shipbuilding contract with Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co. The new passenger cruise ship for the Turku (Finland)–Åland Islands–Stockholm (Sweden) route has planned delivery in 2020.
The ship will be built with readiness to install two of Norsepower’s 24x4 Rotor Sails after it is delivered from the shipyard.
“The new vessel will be a collaborative project, and the plan is to engage a number of Finnish and other European suppliers. The energy-efficient vessel will be 218 meters in length and have a gross registered tonnage of about 63,000 tones. Passenger capacity will be 2,800 people, and the length of its cargo lanes will be 1,500 meters. Viking Line will hire Scandinavian architects for the interior design. The new vessel will provide a brand-new passenger experience for guests”.
