Deltamarin participates into Socatra sail conversion project
Deltamarin and Socatra have signed a contract for a conversion basic design package for installing two Norsepower rotor sails onboard the 50,000dwt Chemical/Product tanker Alcyone.

The Medium Range chemical tanker built in 2022 will be retrofitted with two 35 x 5 m Norsepower rotor sails. Deltamarin will carry out a full class approval design package for the conversion, including naval architectural, structural, structural analysis, deck outfitting, machinery and electrical works. All the necessary modifications to the existing vessel will be carried out with the aim of class approval from the selected class society.

Kristian Knaapi, Sales Manager at Deltamarin, says: “We are delighted to execute this project together with Socatra and Norsepower, and we look forward to seeing the vessel with installed sails in operation early next year. Wind is definitely a good technology for decarbonisation in both segments, in existing ships and new builds.

The signed contract is a good continuation of previous similar projects that Deltamarin has done for both existing ships and new constructions. The increase in decarbonisation technologies and clean technology solutions indicates a clear shift towards efficient and environmentally friendly operations, and enables progress towards emissions reduction goals, such as minimising fuel costs, enabling carbon regulatory compliance and improving IMO Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) ratings.
