About Anemoi:

We are global leaders in Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion.

Our mission is to advance Rotor Sail technology, accelerating its adoption across the world’s merchant fleet and proving it can benefit the sustainable future of shipping.

Rotor Sails harness power from the wind to help propel ships, enhancing vessel efficiency by decreasing fuel consumption, reducing bunker costs and lessening vessel emissions.

By combining this renewable energy technology with innovative engineering and a deep practical understanding of the shipping industry, we have developed Rotor Sail systems that offer fuel-saving benefits to a range of vessel types and sizes, both as new-builds and as retrofits.

We’re a small but growing company, centred in London with a second office in Brockenhurst and an operational team at our suppliers and at the shipyards in China.
