Norsepower Oy Ltd is a Finnish clean technology and engineering company pioneering modern auxiliary wind propulsion for the global maritime industry. Norsepower's Rotor Sail Solution is a modernized Flettner rotor, which provides thrust and reduces fuel consumption of the main propulsion machinery. Norsepower’s Rotor Sails are low-maintenance, easy to use, and reliable fuel saving technology, supporting the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. Performance and reliability of the model 18x3 (18 m height and 3 m diameter) Rotor Sails has been verified with extensive measurements from the Rotor Sails installed on the roro vessel M/V Estraden. Successful operating experience since 2014 encouraged Norsepower to design larger Rotor Sail model improving the fuel saving potential even further. Installation of a model 24x4 Rotor Sail to the cruise ferry Grace, owned by Viking Line, and two model 30x5 Rotor Sails to an aframax tanker owned by Maersk are ongoing in 2018.
