The Aquarius Eco Ship is a sustainable ship design concept by Eco Marine Power (EMP) which incorporates patented Aquarius MRE technology along with other fuel & emission reduction technologies including the Aquarius MAS computer system. This combination of technologies could lead to an annual fuel reduction of 40% or more plus significantly lower noxious gas & carbon and particulate matter emissions.

Aquarius MRE incorporates patented EnergySail technology developed by Eco Marine Power and energy storage modules, marine-grade solar panels and control & management systems. Aquarius MRE is fully automated, requires little attention from the ship's crew and provides a means to help shipping lines and/or ship owners comply with emission reduction regulations.

This image shows an Aquarius Eco Ship concept applied to a bulk carrier or bulker, however the Aquarius Eco Ship concept could be applied to other types of vessels such as oil tankers, cargo ships, cruise ships offshore support ships & passenger ferries.

The EnergySail is a innovative rigid sail device designed by Eco Marine Power which can be used either as a stand-alone unit or in an array as shown. The EnergySail can be positioned automatically by a computer system or manually controlled via the ship's crew. This computer system is know as the EnergySail ACS and is being developed jointly by EMP and KEI System in Osaka, Japan.

The flexibility of the EnergySail design means that it can be installed on a wide variety of ships including bulk carriers, cargo ships, passenger ferries, cruise ships and even unmanned surface vessels.

The EnergySail can also be used when a ship is in port or harbour which is a major advantage over traditional & rigid sail designs.

A typical Aquarius MRE solution would include several EnergySail devices along with energy storage modules & solar panels either mounted on the sails or elsewhere on the ship.
