Norsepower Oy Ltd is a leading clean technology and engineering company pioneering modern auxiliary wind propulsion for the global maritime industry.
Norsepower’s Rotor Sail Solution is a proven, low-maintenance, easy to use, and reliable fuel saving technology, supporting the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. It is currently installed on three vessels (Bore’s M/V Estraden, Viking Line’s M/S Viking Grace, and Maersk Tankers’ Maersk Pelican) and has achieved over 35,000 hours in operation, saving more than 4,500 tonnes of CO2 in the process. The solution has delivered independently verified fuel savings with potential of up to 20%.
Since its inception in late 2012, the company has received a number of awards including the 2018 International Quality Innovation Award, the WWF 2018 Climate Solver Award, Norshipping 2017 Young Entrepreneur Award, and the Lloyd’s List Global Award 2016 amongst others.
Most recently, the Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution has received the first-ever type approval design certificate granted by DNV-GL to an auxiliary wind propulsion system onboard a commercial ship. The type approval was issued in March 2019 – following a design assessment of Norsepower’s 30-metres by 5-metre Rotor Sail, two of which have been installed onboard the Maersk Pelican LR2 tanker.Visit website
