Rotor Sails for Bulk Carriers

Anemoi’s Rail and Folding Deployment System make it possible for Rotor Sails to be installed on Bulk Carriers, which have more complex cargo operations. The large deck space allows for the optimum number and configuration of Rotor Sails to be installed in order to maximise savings.

How we calculate savings

Our in-house Fuel Saving Assessment

Anemoi estimate the expected fuel and emissions savings using our in-house Fuel Saving Assessment Method (FSAM). This method combines the following 4 key sets of input data:

  • Rotor performance data, from our UK test facility
  • Vessel performance data, from the Client or Clarksons Research World Fleet Register
  • Route data, from the Client or 3rd Party AIS provider
  • Wind Data, from NASA dataset

These 4 sets of data are run within FSAM to determine the expected fuel and emissions savings for the vessel on any desired trade routes. Thousands of historic voyages on each route are simulated for the previous 5 years to ensure that the results reflect the wind conditions experienced. We present “net” savings, which take into account the negative impacts of Rotor Sail operation including headwind drag and increased generator usage to give a fair and transparent estimation of performance.

Fuel Saving Assessment

See how much you could save

The first step in understanding the potential of Anemoi Rotor Sails for your vessel is for us to undertake a fuel and emission saving assessment. By sending us some specific information about your vessel(s), we can provide a bespoke Rotor Sail arrangement and estimate of your potential savings.
