Norsepower has a strong project pipeline. New projects are ongoing and the next delivery is scheduled for 2021.
Newbuild bulk carrier
Norsepower, the leading global provider of auxiliary wind propulsion systems, has announced its first newbuild order - for the installation of a record five tilting Rotor Sails on board a large bulk carrier. Preparations are currently taking place with the installation onboard, the owner of which preferring to remain anonymous at this stage, scheduled for 2021.
Norsepower was founded in late 2012 with a mission to reduce the environmental impact of shipping by providing efficient, easy to use, and reliable auxiliary wind propulsion for ships through its Rotor Sail Solution technology. The concept of Rotor Sails was first devised by Finnish inventor and architect Sigurd Savonius in the 1920s, concurrently with German engineer Anton Flettner. Our vision is to set the standard in bringing sails back to ocean transportation, and empower shipping towards reaching the goal of zero carbon emissions.
