Shipping green energy has improved with the latest project
Eco Marine Power proudly reports to collaborate with Blue Star Ferries of Greece in order to develop some green energy related technologies for shipping, for example: the Aquarius Management and Automation System (MAS) with an integrated marine solar power system.
The Blue Star Delos Renewable Energy Innovation Project is big improvement and transforms shipping into a sustainable using renewable energy and fuel reduction solutions on-board ships.
The new strategy will study a multitude of inventive solutions made by Eco Marine Power (EMP) and some of its collaborators from “Blue Star Delos” – a contemporary high speed passenger and car ferry owned and operated by the multi-award winning Greek shipping company – Blue Star Ferries of Athens, Greece – a member of Attica Group.
Blue Star Delos and sister vessel Patmos incorporated cutting edge sustainable vessel technology as a premiere for vessels in the Mediterranean region. With a hybrid shaft generator system (HSG) – an innovative sophisticated active front end frequency converter system enabling the shaft generators to be constantly connected to the ships’ grid, the have a bigger power factor and release less Nox emissions.
Moreover, HVAC and engine room ventilation enjoy a frequency converted load dependent management system that can reduce fuel dependency and reduce Nox emissions.
In the project’s first steps, a marine solar power system based on flexible lightweight marine grade panels from Solbian Energie Alternative is going to be a part of the Aquarius MAS and it will all be observed for best performance. Furthermore, fuel oil consumption will be calculated with the Aquarius MAS, an alarm device foe green energy projects.
Greg Atkinson, Director and Chief Technology Officer at EMP says that: “This project with Blue Star Ferries is very exciting for Eco Marine Power and for our strategic partners as it will be the first deployment on a ship of some of the technologies and solutions we have been developing over the last few years including our integrated renewable energy systems.”
It is said that the Blue Star Delos Renewable Energy Innovation Project will lead the way to a bigger and stronger development of EMP’s renewable energy proposals in the domain.
