A modernized version of the Flettner rotor, the Norsepower Rotor Sail️ uses a minimal amount of the ship’s electrical energy to spin cylindrical rotors on the ship’s deck. The rotation together with the wind creates a strong thrust – this saves fuel and reduces emissions.
The product has been used by customers for over eight years and has over 250,000 hours of verified performance data – showing fuel savings of 5-25% or more.
Norsepower said the new funding will help accelerate production scale and meet rising global demand. It will also strengthen Norsepower’s product research and development, marketing, recruitment and sizable intellectual property portfolio.
