Congratulations to Norsepower Oy for winning the JEC award of 2020!

We were delighted to read that Norsepower won the Maritime Transportation & Shipbuilding category at the JEC Group 2020 Innovation Awards!

We appreciate your collaborative efforts and the time you devoted with us to tailor the perfect coating system for the Rotor Sail Lightweight Solution. As mentioned at the official JEC newsletter: “The Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution uses advanced composite materials and a leading-edge control system to reduce cargo and passenger vessel fuel consumption. When the wind conditions are favourable, Rotor Sails allow the main engines to be throttled back, saving fuel and reducing emissions. Rotor sails can be built onto new vessels or retrofitted to existing ships.”

Norsepower and Finnester joined forces to coat their prize-winning technology’s outer layer with the Finnesters HybridRED coating system from the Hybrid-family for fire and thermal-resistant protection. In marine and offshore applications, the certificate: IMO 2010 FTP Code Part 5 evaluates a material’s ability to withstand a fire spreading along its surface and fire release and heat release.

HybridRED gave the Rotor Sails their beautiful textured golf ball- like finish and completed the high end Gurit composite with the necessary fire protection.
