Company Background Information
Norsepower was founded in late 2012 with a mission to reduce the environmental impact of shipping through its Rotor Sail Solution technology. The concept of the Flettner rotor was first devised by Finnish inventor and architect Sigurd Savonius in the 1920s, concurrently with German engineer Anton Flettner. The first Atlantic crossing - by a vessel using Flettner rotors only - took place in 1926 proving the principle. However, technical challenges and the market situation prevented more widespread application.
