COPENHAGEN, a hybrid passenger ferry operating between Rostock and Gedser, was retrofitted with a Norsepower Rotor Sail unit measuring 30m in height and 5m in diameter. The installation was completed in a matter of hours, following meticulous preparation over the past few months.
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.
TNormally, one DFDS cruise ferry is in Oslo and one in Copenhagen. Exceptionally both CROWN SEAWAYS and PEARL SEAWAYS were in Copenhagen, after the first returned from drydock.
