FLETTNER INSTALLED

June 14, 2018
A major step in the Eco Flettner project has been completed: Yesterday afternoon the rotor has been safely craned onto the forecastle of „Fehn Pollux“ and secured on its foundation. In a next step cables and wirings between the rotor and the control console have to be connected and the Eco Flettner has to perform first test drives. more...

"FEHN POLLUX" ARRIVES IN LEER

June 1, 2018
The "Fehn Pollux" arrived this morning from Spain in the port of Leer. The 4200-dwat ship has moored at the SEC shipyard and will be equipped with the prototype Eco Flettners over the next three weeks. The rotor consists of a 18 meter high cylinder with a diameter of three meters. The Eco Flettner exploits a wide range of wind speeds thanks to its extended speed range. The additional thrust gained from wind energy is intended to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

"FEHN POLLUX" ON HER WAY HOME

May 25, 2018
"Fehn Pollux" is on her way home. After arriving in Leer in late May, the 4200 dwat vessel will be the first ship to be equipped with the prototype of a newly developed sail propulsion system. The Eco Flettner exploits a wide range of wind speeds thanks to its extended speed range. The additional thrust gained from wind energy is intended to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions. As the sailing power increases, the engine power can be reduced. The rotor consists of a 18 meter high cylinder with a diameter of three meters. Since May 2015, the rotor has been thoroughly tested on land and passed all tests successfully. more...

FOR A BETTER CLIMATE

Jan 05, 2018
Fehn Ship Management is taking part in a worldwide programme to reduce greenhouse gas emission, the World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI). All ships taking part in this voluntary programme have to report the specifics of their fuel consumers, the fuel consumption, the kind of fuel used and the distance they sailed. From this data the output of emissions is calculated and the ship receives an Environmental Ship Index (ESI). The better the score, the more benefits are offered by the partaking ports. This ranges from discounts on port dues to the free use of pilots.
