Lloyd's Leads Rotor Sail Partnership

Lloyd’s Register is partnering with rotor sail producer Anemoi Marine Technologies and Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute (SDARI) to develop a series of energy efficient vessel designs equipped with rotor sails, inclusive of new hull forms, energy management systems, powering arrangements, and operational requirements.

Ensuring technology fits market needs for the wet and dry bulk markets is a priority for Lloyd's Register.

Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has joined a corporate-academic partnership called the Wind Hunter Project, considering hydrogen fuel and wind power with Ouchi Ocean Consultant, the National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI) of National Institute of Maritime, Port and Aviation Technology (MPAT), Smart Design, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences of The University of Tokyo, West Japan Fluid Engineering Laboratory, Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK), and Miraihene Planning.
