Copenhagen ferry ready for a Rotor Sail

In the spring of 2019, the hybrid ferry Berlin underwent an intermediate survey at Remontowa Shiprepair Yard SA. In November its ferry-twin, the Copenhagen, arrived at the shipyard. Both ships are owned by Scandlines.

The ferry Copenhagen underwent dry-docking with a wide scope of works. In addition, Remontowa SA has built the foundation for a ‘Rotor Sail’  – a device that imitates the operation of a sail. A new mast has also been mounted as the stern top light must be placed in front of the rotor sail. The device itself will be installed in Q2 2020.

By installing a rotating sail on the ferry Copenhagen, the projected reduction of CO2 emissions is expected to be 4-5 percent.
