      And again about the rotors
      The Finnish technology company Norsepower, which designs and installs Fletner rotors on ships, has confirmed more than 8 percent fuel savings from testing its products aboard Maersk Pelican Maersk Tankers.

And again about the rotors

Rotary sails are a modern version of Flettner's rotors, rotating cylinders that use the Magnus effect to help propel the ship and increase fuel economy using wind power.

In August 2018, two 30-meter rotors were installed on board the Maersk Pelican, which travels in a variety of conditions in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

According to Norsepower, during the annual tests from September 2018 to September 2019, the total amount of fuel saved was 8.2%, which is equivalent to a reduction in emissions of about 1,400 tons of CO2.

These data, obtained during the study, were analyzed and confirmed by the Lloyd's Register of the Ship Performance Group.
