Eco Marine Power - Company Profile

Innovative Technologies & Solutions for Sustainable Shipping

Eco Marine Power Co. Ltd. (EMP) is an internationally focused technology company based in Fukuoka, Japan, that develops innovative fuel and emissions reduction technologies for shipping. These technologies include the patented Aquarius MRE System, EnergySail (patent pending) and Aquarius MAS. In addition EMP works with a number of strategic partners to offer a range of other products and solutions including marine hybrid power, computer control systems, marine solar power and energy storage solutions. These technologies are suitable for a wide range of ships, ferries and other vessels.sea_japan_2014_515x480

stg_awards-button-nomineeOne of our major product development projects is the Aquarius MRE System (Patented) - a wind power and solar energy system for ocean going vessels.

This innovative system will allow ships to utilise wind power via a computer controlled integrated system of rigid but movable sails in order to reduce fuel consumption and lower noxious gas emissions. These sails may also be fitted with solar panels or other devices.

The rigid sail or EnergySail technology (patent pending) being developed for the system is unique to EMP. 

In addition to reducing fossil fuel consumption and harmful airborne emissions, ship owners and operators will be able to decrease the CO2 footprint of their fleet and install the Aquarius MRE System on a wide variety of ships and vessels.

The various technologies developed for the system can also be applied to almost any ship including bulk carriers, oil tankers, survey ships, offshore support vessels, tug boats, passenger ferries and even naval ships.

Another cutting-edge green shipping technology development project being undertaken by Eco Marine Power is the Tonbo solar-electric ferry or hybrid marine power (HMP) vessel. This innovative design project incorporates the latest solar module, Lithium battery and electrical power management technology so that the Tonbo's fuel consumption and emission of noxious gases will be significantly less than other ships or ferries of the same size.soe_award_web

EMP is also working on a smaller solar-electric commuter ferry or eco commuter ferry design called the Medaka plus studying how large scale renewable energy technologies can be incorporated into ship designs and looking into the use of renewable energy on-board Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV's).

Eco Marine Power has been internationally recognised for its green_shipping_initiative_2011innovative designs & solutions and has been nominated for a number of awards including the Katerva katerva_2012_nomineeAwards (2012) and Sustainable Shipping Awards (2011).  It was also the recipient of a 2012 Solutions Inspiring Action Award from the Savannah Oceans Exchange.
