31 Oct 2023 | Abstracted from New Atlas

"The new streamlined vessels will feature six Flettner rotors, which are large, vertical, rotating cylinders that act like airfoils and use the wind to generate thrust to drive the craft. In addition, the ships will incorporate two dual-fuel engines running on maritime diesel oil and e-methanol.

"According to Airbus, the new technology will reduce carbon emissions from 68,000 to 33,000 tonnes by 2030."
