An ambitious test project was supposed to be underway. A tanker vessel with two 30 meter high rotor sails which ensures good fuel savings. However Maersk Tankers' giant sails project has been delayed slightly, confirms the carrier to ShippingWatch.
In the spring last year, the carrier announced that a tanker vessel would be equipped with the two sails, which are five meters in diameter. Originally, the plan was to install the sails on the vessel in the first half of 2018, after which the test phase and data collection would take place until the end of 2019.
