Oldendorff Carriers has ordered the installation of wind rotors on one of its post-Panamax bulk carriers in collaboration with Norsepower and Teck Resources. Norsepower will manufacture the rotors, constructed in part with recycled materials, including material from approximately 342,000 plastic bottles. The chosen vessel, the Dietrich Oldendorff, will have three rotors offset on the starboard side to avoid interfering with cargo operations. The addition of rotors, along with other emission savings measures, is expected to reduce emissions by 55%, providing an annual reduction of over 17,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
