As the shipping industry embarks on the process of energy conservation and emission reduction, rotor sails are more competitive in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making shipping more environmentally friendly. The rotor sail is a large cylindrical mechanical sail. When the ship sails on a specific route with long-term lateral wind, it uses wind energy as additional power to reduce fuel consumption, which can not only meet the requirements of environmental protection regulations, but also help the shipping industry to reduce the emissions of pollutants to complete the decarbonization target. 

Zhongfu Lianzhong has a complete equipment of filament winding technology, and has more than 30 years of experience in the production of glass fibre-reinforced tanks. It has provided a large number of products for customers in the fields of petrochemical, electric power, environmental protection, etc. The company has more than 30 FRP tank production lines, FRP pipelines, FRP sand pipelines, FRP storage tanks, large FRP containers, etc. 

With strong technical capabilities and rich experience in composite materials design and production, Zhongfu Lianzhong stood out from domestic and foreign bidding companies and signed contracts with customers. During the cooperation period, the Zhongfu Lianzhong project team and the customer project team discussed, revised and improved one version after another of the plan, organized production tests for many times, summed up the actual and effective product data, and laid a solid foundation for the rollout of the rotor sail. According to research and data, the application of this technology can save 5%-30% of fuel and help save energy and reduce emissions without reducing the speed of the ship.
