More carriers show interest in installing giant sails this year

Norsepower will soon close more deals with shipowners to install sails, explains CEO Tuomas Riski, who counts Maersk Tankers and Viking Line among his customers. Ultrabulk is also looking into the possibility of powering larger dry bulk vessels with windpower.

In August, Maersk Pelican was fitted with two 30 meter tall rotor sails. The ship is currently conducting an eight month test period. Photo: Norsepower
