A rotor ship, or Flettner ship, is a ship designed to use the Magnus effect (elaborated by scientist MAGNUS) for propulsion. To take advantage of this effect, it uses ROTATING vertical cylinders which are POWERED BY ENGINE. The Magnus effect is a force acting on a spinning/rotating body in a moving air-stream, which acts perpendicularly to the direction of the air-stream. German engineer Anton Flettner was the first to build a ship which attempted to tap this force for propulsion.

The wind must come/blow from the SIDE of the ship, so that the resultant force caused by the cylinders is towards FORWARD, moving the ship forward (an air-dynamics postulate for this phenomena).
I slightly-slightly still recall, in the corner of my mind, that the cylinders MUST BE ROTATING to cause this effect (is my remembering OK!?). I have also forgot by now, the Name of the Scientist who elaborated this air-dynamics postulate.

no fuel for propulsion then :)

She was using fuel anyway for the gensets.

she has allegedly travelled for 2 days recently at 12 knots and used no fuel at all
