Maersk Pelican

OWNER: Maersk Tankers

Project partnership: Maersk Tankers, The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), and Shell Shipping & Maritime   Installation: August 2018, Norsepower Two Rotor Sails 30x5   Two Rotor Sails were installed in August 2018 and underwent testing and data analysis at sea until the end of 2019. Inpependent measurements conducted by Lloyd's Register confirmed savings of 8.2% during the first year of operation. Two Rotor Sails 30x5 are expected to reduce average fuel consumption on typical global shipping routes by 7-10%.

This project is breaking ground in the product tanker industry. While the industry has gone through decades of technological development, the use of wind propulsion technology onboard a product tanker vessel could take us to a new playing field.
