Wind and Solar Marine Power

Renewable Energy Solutions for Low Emission Shipping

From small powered pleasure craft and ferries to large super-tankers, the limitless energy of the wind and sun can be used in order to help power ships thereby reducing fuel consumption, the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and noxious exhaust emissions.

Using a variety of Technolomarine_solar_installation_20141010_1agies including the Aquarius MRE System, Eco Marine Power is working with ship owners, boat operators, shipping lines, technology providers and naval architects on solutions for new or existing vessels that will help these ships take advantage of the latest technology from around the world to harness the power of renewable energy.

Eco-friendly solutions can be developed that use mainly solar power only or more advanced eco-marine power systems are available that use state-of-the-art hybrid marine power technology and EMP's EnergySail technology.

Some ideal applications for the use of wind and solar power include cruise boats, tourist catamarans, fishing vessels, work boats, survey ships, oil tankers, cargo ships, patrol vessels and passenger ferries.

Not only do the renewable energy systems developed by EMP reduce fuel consumption but they can also effectively increase the operating range of vessels - ideal for coatsguard, research and survey ships for example.

On a larger scale, the Aquarius MRE System which is currently being developed, will be suitable for use on coastal ships and large vessels such as bulk ore carriers and oil tankers. However future variations of the system will be suitable for smaller ships.

The Aquarius MRE System and other technologies being developed by EMP will help drive shipping towards a greener future and contribute to the global reduction of harmful gas emissions from the world's shipping fleets.

Eco Marine Power's technologies will play an important role in assisting shipyards meet energy efficiency design index (EEDI) requirements and ship owners comply with MARPOL regulations.

Marine Solar Power Systems

Marine solar power systems can be installed on large ships such as car carriers, bulkers, passenger ferries and oil tankers plus on smaller ships such as commuter ferries, river boats and recreational vessels..

An EMP integrated marine solar power system includes a reliable computer management and monitoring system known as the Aquarius Management & Automation System (MAS), a high performance battery pack, MPPT charge controllers and marine-grade solar panels. This integrated system can be used to provide either DC or AC power to a ship or vessel.aquarius_mas_cpu_20141017_1a

The Aquarius MAS is a cost effective alarm handling, performance monitoring and data logging platform suitable for a wide range of ships. The system is based upon the type approved KEI 3240 Data Logger which is already in use on hundreds of vessels.

EMP can also provide worldwide a full turn-key service including system design & installation along with our technical support partners. For more information please see: Aquarius MAS + Marine Solar Power

The use of solar power on ships reduces vessel emissions, provides a clean source of renewable energy and can help reduce operating costs.

The future of green shipping is here today and Eco Marine Power is at the forefront of this green marine revolution!
