   两艘30米高的旋翼帆已安装在产品油轮Maersk Pelica号上,其目标是在典型的全球航线上降低燃料成本和相关排放7%-10%。

 
  Norsepower Oy公司与项目合作伙伴Maersk油轮、能源技术研究所(ETI)和壳牌航运和海事公司宣布,在Maersk Pelica号上安装了两艘Norsepower旋翼帆,这是一艘Maersk油轮长距离2(LR2)号产品油轮。
  旋翼帆是大型的圆柱机械帆,旋转产生一种压差-称为马格努斯效应-推动容器前进。旋翼帆将为船舶提供辅助风力推进,通过在典型的全球航线上降低燃料消耗和相关排放来优化燃料效率。
  旋翼帆是世界上最大的帆船之一,直径30米,直径5米,安装在鹿特丹港的产品油轮上。安装了旋翼帆的第一次航行将很快开始。
  “这个项目是在产品油罐车行业的开创性的。虽然这个行业已经经历了几十年的技术发展,但在一艘产品油轮上使用风力推进技术可以使我们进入一个新的竞争环境。这项新技术有潜力帮助该行业提高成本竞争力,因为它为客户在世界各地运送货物,并减少对环境的影响,“Maersk油轮首席技术官托米·托马森(TommyThomassen)说。
  该旋翼帆已完成严格的陆地测试,包括对各种机械和性能标准的彻底测试,是第一个获准在产品油轮上使用的旋翼帆。现在将对旋翼帆的有效性进行广泛的测量和评估,以测试该技术的长期财政和技术可行性。劳埃德船级社(LR)船舶性能小组的独立专家将在测试阶段获取和分析性能数据,以确保在发表技术和操作见解以及性能研究报告之前进行公正的评估。
  HDV海洋和近海可再生能源方案主管Andrew Scott解释说:
  他说:“我们委托这项计划,提供一个独特的机会,展示旋翼帆尚未开发的潜力。辅助风力推进技术是少数几种有望提供两位数百分比改进的节油技术之一。这项技术预计将特别适用于油轮和干散货船,这项测试将有助于确定产品油轮行业转子帆的进一步潜力。“
  Norsepower首席执行官图马斯·里斯基(TuomsRiski)补充道:
  “随着在 Maersk Pelican安装这一装置,现在有三艘船舶在日常商业运作使用挪威电力的旋翼帆。这些案例中的每一个都代表着非常不同的船舶类型和运行状况,这表明了在整个海洋行业通过弗莱特纳旋翼驾驭风的广泛机会。“
  壳牌航运公司副总裁Graheme Henderson博士总结道:
  他说:“航运业面对一项重大挑战,就是如何在经济上运输世界所需的越来越多的货物和能源,同时减低对环境的影响。”我们认为,采用、测试和推动创新技术具有重大优势,这些技术在帮助航运业应对这一挑战方面显示出真正的希望。“
  挪威电力公司的旋翼帆解决方案是第一个数据验证和商业运作的辅助风力推进技术,可用于全球海事工业。当风条件有利时,主发动机可以节流,节省燃料,减少排放,同时保持速度和航行时间。每艘北力旋翼帆均采用轻质复合夹层材料制造,确保旋翼帆保持良好平衡,并提供高科技、低维护的解决方案。

  Two 30-metre tall rotor sails have been installed onboard the product tanker vessel Maersk Pelican targeting a reduction in fuel cost and associated emissions on typical global shipping routes of 7-10%.
  Testing begins on product tanker vessel utilising wind propulsion technology
  Norsepower Oy, together with project partners Maersk Tankers, Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and Shell Shipping & Maritime, announced the installation of two Norsepower Rotor Sails onboard Maersk Pelican, a Maersk Tankers Long Range 2 (LR2) product tanker vessel.
  The rotor sails are large, cylindrical mechanical sails that spin to create a pressure differential - called the Magnus effect - that propels the vessel forward. The rotor sails will provide auxiliary wind propulsion to the vessel, optimising fuel efficiency by reducing fuel consumption and associated emissions by an expected 7-10% on typical global shipping routes.
  The rotor sails are one of the world’s largest at 30 metres tall by five metres in diameter and were installed on the product tanker vessel in the port of Rotterdam. The first voyage with the rotor sails installed will commence shortly.
  “This project is breaking ground in the product tanker industry. While the industry has gone through decades of technological development, the use of wind propulsion technology onboard a product tanker vessel could take us to a new playing field. This new technology has the potential to help the industry be more cost-competitive as it moves cargoes around the world for customers and to reduce the environmental impact,” said Tommy Thomassen, Chief Technical Officer, Maersk Tankers.
  The rotor sails have completed rigorous land testing, including thorough testing of various mechanical and performance criteria, and is the first rotor sails to be Class approved for use on a product tanker vessel. Extensive measurement and evaluation of the effectiveness of the rotor sails will now take place to test the long-term financial and technical viability of the technology. Independent experts from Lloyd’s Register’s (LR’s) Ship Performance team will acquire and analyse the performance data during the test phase to ensure an impartial assessment before technical and operational insights as well as performance studies are published.
  Andrew Scott, Programme Manager HDV marine and offshore renewable energy, ETI explained:
  “We commissioned this project to provide a unique opportunity to demonstrate the untapped potential of Rotor Sails. Auxiliary wind propulsion is one of the few fuel-saving technologies that is expected to offer double-digit percentage improvements. The technology is projected to be particularly suitable for tankers and dry bulk carriers, and this test will assist in determining the further potential for Rotor Sails in the product tanker industry.”
  Tuomas Riski, CEO, Norsepower, added:
  “With this installation on the Maersk Pelican, there are now three vessels in daily commercial operation using Norsepower’s Rotor Sails. Each of these cases represents a very different vessel type and operational profile, demonstrating the widespread opportunity to harness the wind through Flettner rotors across the maritime industry.”
  Dr. Grahaeme Henderson, Vice-President, Shell Shipping & Maritime, concluded:
  “The shipping industry faces a major challenge in how it can economically ship the increasing amounts of goods and energy the world demands, whilst lowering its environmental impact. We see significant advantages in embracing, testing and driving innovative technologies that we believe show real promise in helping the shipping industry meet this challenge.”
  Norsepower’s rotor sail solution is the first data-verified and commercially operational auxiliary wind propulsion technology available for the global maritime industry. When wind conditions are favourable the main engines can be throttled back, saving fuel and reducing emissions, while maintaining speed and voyage time. Each Norsepower Rotor Sail is made using lightweight composite sandwich materials, which ensure the rotor sail remains well-balanced and offers a hi-tech, low maintenance solution.
