The facility is expected to be operational in late summer 2021 and will make it possible for DFDS’ ferries CROWN SEAWAYS and PEARL SEAWAYS to significantly reduce the ships’ CO2 emissions while in port.

The preparatory work for the installation of the rotor sail on the hybrid ferry COPENHAGEN was successfully completed during the planned shipyard stay in autumn 2019.

A steel foundation and cables were laid to prepare the installation of the rotor sail, scheduled for the second quarter of 2020. In addition, a new mast was mounted, as the stern top light must be placed in front of the rotor sail.

The installation of the rotor sail will reduce Scandlines’ CO2 emissions from its ferry by four to five percent.

The new DFDS headquarters will be located close to the water on the Marmormolen wharf at the Nordhavn harbor. On completion, the building will resemble a large vessel docked in port.

The design of the building is inspired by the structure of a cruise liner. The bottom “deck” of the building will be a parking garage. The next three decks will contain office spaces. The building will also have meeting rooms, a restaurant and a two-deck auditorium that seats 200-300 people. A roof terrace will be on the top deck of the building with a view over the water.
