Technical visit

The Motorship’s Propulsion and Future Fuels Conference 2021 included a technical visit on the third and final day of the conference.

On Thursday 4th November, delegates were invited on board the M/V Copenhagen, which is equipped with Norsepower’s rotor sail, which helps to reduce CO2 emissions from the hybrid ferry.

A rotor sail has the optimum effect when it is windy and the wind comes from the side. The route between Gedser to the north and Rostock to the south is almost perpendicular to the prevailing wind from the west or the east. This gives the M/V Copenhagen favorable conditions for using rotor sails on the crossing. By installing a rotor sail, Scanlines expect to reduce the CO2 emission from M/V Copenhagen by four to five percent.
