The project "FlettnerFLEET – Development of a comprehensive methodology for the integration of Flettner rotors on different ship types" is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action as part of the "Maritime Research Program". Reducing emissions in shipping is the order of the day. Additional wind drives can make an important contribution. The FlettnerFLEET project creates the necessary prerequisites and foundations for the further development of Flettnerrotor technology and for the development of ships with this innovative propulsion system. The project consortium, consisting of partners from science and industry. The project aims to develop a comprehensive methodology for the design of vessels with flettner rotors to enable wide application of the technology in shipping. For this purpose, various ship types are examined in the project together with the participating shipping companies and optimized according to their properties for operation with Flettner rotors. The aim of SCHOTTEL GmbH is the development of economical design and manufacturing processes for FLETTNER-rotors, as well as the development of a concept for a main propulsion control system.
