Norsepower has a strong project pipeline. New projects are ongoing and the next delivery is scheduled for Q2 2020.
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 the hybrid ferry M/V Copenhagen even further. Sailing between Rostock (DE) and Gedser (DK), the wind conditions are expected to be favourable for wind propulsion.

By installing a Rotor Sail, we can reduce CO2 emissions on the Rostock-Gedser route by four to five per cent.
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.
