Fuel-Saving Wind Propulsion System to Start Sea Trials
Norsepower Oy will test their system aboard Bore Ltd's M/V Estraden. Finnish marine engineering company Norsepower Oy said it has started sea trials for an auxiliary wind propulsion system that aims to help ships reduce fuel consumption, reports Maritime Executive. The company said that the aim of the pilot project is to prove the savings potential and how usable the technology is, which uses an 18-metre-high rotor sail. “The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution, which is appropriate for retrofitting to over 20,000 vessels in the global merchant fleet, can be installed on any vessel without any off-hire costs," said Norsepower CEO Tuomas Riski.Upload News
