Norsepower is well respected for its Rotor Sail Solution - a proven, low-maintenance, easy to use, and reliable fuel saving technology, supporting the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. Norsepower’s Rotor Sails have been installed on board five different vessels including a tanker, bulker, and a Ro-Ro. Additionally, Norsepower has calculated that Rotor Sail technology is technically applicable to around 30,000 vessels currently in operation around the world, this would represent more than a third of the global maritime fleet. Based on this, Norsepower estimates that this would result in more than 80 megatonnes of CO2 emissions being reduced on an annual basis by Norsepower’s Rotor Sails alone.
