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 TechnoloInstallation of Solar Power Array on Shipgies including the patented Aquarius MRE, Eco Marine Power (EMP)  is working with ship owners, shipping lines, ship managers, technology providers and naval architects on solutions for new or existing vessels that will help these ships take advantage of the latest technology to harness the power of renewable energy.

Some ideal applications for the use of wind and solar power include cruise boats, tourist catamarans, fishing vessels, offshore support vessels, survey ships, oil tankers, cargo ships, RoRo 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.

Aquarius MRE 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.

EMP technologies will play an important role in assisting shipyards meet energy efficiency design index (EEDI) requirements and ship owners comply with pollution reduction 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.Eco Marine Power Aquarius MAS KEI3240 CPU

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.

Wind Power

EMP's EnergySail technology (Patent Pending) allows ship to harness the power via a computer controlled rigid sail or rigid sail array. Typically an EnergySail array would be incoporated into an Aquaris MRE solution but the installation of an EnergySail as a standalone device is possible.

EnergySail by Eco Marine PowerAn EnergySail can also include marine grade solar panels either on the sail itself located near the sail. The flexible nature of the EnergySail design will also allow for it to be upgraded during the life-cycle of the ship it is fitted to so that newer technologies can be incorporated as they become available such as more efficient solar modules or panels.

Other technologies can also be fitted to the EnergySail including wind power generating devices.

In addition to being suitable for ocean-going ships including RoRo vessels, cruise ships and large passenger ferries, several variations of the EnergySail are being developed which will be suitable for smaller vessels including Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV's) and Autonomous ships and vessels.

Technologies associated with the EnergySail are also suitable for offshore renewable energy projects and land-based renewable energy projects.

An example of how the EnergySail could be incorporated into a modern ship design is the Aquarius Eco Ship. This low emission - sustainable ship design concept includes an EnergySail array and other technologies so that solar & wind power can be used to reduce fuel consumption and lower noxious gas emissions.
