Japan’s Iino Lines is to fit Norsepower rotor sails on a VLGC newbuilding to cut fuel use.

The companies said two sails will be installed on a 91,000-cbm dual-fuel ship delivered on Friday from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea.

The bespoke 20-metre-tall sails will be fitted side by side.

The Finnish producer said the sails are four metres wide and have been designed to accommodate the vessel’s specific air draught limits.
