Scandlines, the ferry operator between Germany and Denmark, has fitted a wind-assisted propulsion rotor sail to a second ship.

A 30-metre-high Norsepower rotor sail was installed on Scandlines’ 22,319-gt hybrid ferry Berlin (built 2016) on 16 May in the German port of Rostock while it was out of service for a few hours.

The company fitted its first Norsepower unit to the 1,300-passenger sistership Copenhagen (built 2016) in May 2020.

Scandlines aims to become emission-free by 2040, after setting itself higher targets than the Paris Agreement on climate change.
