Wind turbines on the Stena Jutlandica

Stena Line is the first ferry company in the world to have wind turbines on a passenger ferry. The turbines will both supplying energy and reduce fuel consumption by lowering air resistance.

The two turbines will be mounted on 4 meter high masts on the prow of the ship. The two turbines will produce current for the ship's electricity grid. Since they are to be placed on the prow, they will also contribute to a reduction in the air resistance.
