Anemoi scales up Rotor Sail technology to boost decarbonisation efforts

(Posted on 09/06/23)

Anemoi Marine Technologies, a leading UK-based developer of Rotor Sails for the global shipping industry, is enhancing its efforts to provide its award-winning Rotor Sail technology for ship owners, managers and charterers to install onboard vessels as they look to decarbonise their operations.

The company will be showcasing these solutions at Nor-Shipping 2023, a prominent international maritime event held from 6-9 June at NOVA Spektrum, Lillestrøm, Norway. Attendees are invited to visit Anemoi at Stand D05-04 at the UK Pavillion.

Anemoi offers a range of Rotor Sails, varying in height from 24 to 35m, suitable for installation and retrofitting on deep-sea vessels including bulk carriers, tankers, ferries, ro-ros, and multipurpose vessels. These innovative solutions aim to enhance vessel efficiency as ship owners strive to optimise their fleets. Anemoi's Rotor Sails are available in three flexible configurations - fixed, folding, and rail - tailored to meet the specific requirements of different vessel types and operational profiles.

According to the UK's Clean Maritime Plan, the market for wind propulsion technologies, including Rotor Sails, is projected to reach £2 billion per year by 2050, a significant increase from £300 million in the 2020s. This growth is driven by shipowners' increasing efforts to meet the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to 2008 levels.

Kim Diederichsen, Chief Executive Officer of Anemoi, commented, "Rotor Sails have become a popular choice for commercial ships to reduce fuel consumption, lower harmful emissions, and minimise the need for slow steaming. With a history spanning over a century, this technology can achieve fuel savings of up to 30%, making Anemoi Rotor Sails one of the most effective and sustainable solutions for today's shipping industry."

Anemoi currently has 16 Rotor Sails in production for ongoing projects, including four folding Rotor Sails to be installed on Berge Bulk’s Berge Neblina, a 388,000 dwt Valemax ore carrier.

In addition to these achievements, Anemoi proudly announced in February that the Liberian Registry, which represents approximately 14% of the global fleet, has granted Approval in Principle for their industry-leading Rotor Sail systems. This collaboration signifies a significant step towards a greener future for the maritime industry and underscores the Liberian Registry's commitment to zero-carbon shipping.

Wind propulsion and related technologies will be key topics of discussion at the IMO's 80th Session of the Marine Environmental Protection Committee in July, where the readiness and availability of low- and zero-carbon ship technologies, including Rotor Sails, will be thoroughly examined.

Join Anemoi at Stand D05-04 during Nor-Shipping 2023 to witness the progress in decarbonising the maritime sector. Engage with our experts, explore our innovative solutions, and discover how Anemoi can help your organisation achieve its environmental goals while optimising operational efficiency.
