Who we are:

We are global leaders in Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion.

Our mission is to advance Flettner Rotor technology, accelerating its adoption across the world’s merchant fleet and proving it can work for a sustainable future of shipping.

Flettner Rotors harness power from the wind to help propel ships, enhancing vessel efficiency by decreasing fuel consumption, reducing bunker costs and lessening vessel emissions.

By combining this renewable energy technology with innovative engineering and a deep practical understanding of the shipping industry, we have developed Flettner Rotor systems that offer fuel-saving benefits to a range of vessel types and sizes, both as new-builds and as retrofits.

+ Document results of analysis in a complete, clear and meaningful way
+ Assist in development of thrust verification tools in real time using pressure sensor and/or load measurement data
+ Assist in development of performance modelling and effects of Anemoi systems
+ Provide data and make recommendations to optimize rotor and control system design and operation parameters to maximise fuel savings

About You:

+ Master’s degree or PhD in Naval Architecture, Aeronautical Engineering, Physics or a relevant discipline covering fluid mechanics
+ Strong theoretical background in aero/hydrodynamic principles
+ Experience of aerodynamic and hydrodynamic data analysis
+ Experience of programming data analysis software e.g. Matlab
+ Either fresh graduate with some work experience as part of their degree, or graduate with 1-2 years’ experience
