Introductory video to the Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution, which is a modern, Flettner rotor -based auxiliary wind propulsion solution. The video has been shot on shipping company Bore's Ro-Ro vessel Estraden.

The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution is a modernized version of the Flettner rotor – a spinning cylinder that uses the Magnus effect to harness wind power to propel a ship. When the wind conditions are favourable, Norsepower Rotor Sails allow the main engines to be throttled back, saving fuel and reducing emissions while providing the power needed to maintain speed and voyage time. Rotor sails can be used with new vessels or they can be retrofitted to existing ships. Read more at http://www.norsepower.com
