A rotor sail that offers a reduction in fuel consumption
Norsepower is a Finnish cleantech company in the marine technology sector. In 2014 Norsepower introduced to the market an auxiliary wind propulsion system that maximizes cargo vessels’ fuel efficiency. Originally based on a Finnish invention, the solution provides significant reductions in cargo vessel fuel consumption. In optimal wind conditions, the additional thrust provided by the rotor sail enables operating the main motors with less power than usual, which results in the reduction of fuel input while cruising speed and the required time for the voyage remains the same. The vision of the company is to become a global leader in delivering auxiliary wind propulsion systems for cargo vessels.
Norsepower was established in March 2012. Besides Eera Industrial Development, companies such as Lifeline Ventures, Finnvera, Valve Ventures and VNT Management account as Norsepower’s investors.
