Integrated Ship Solar Power System for Vessels and Offshore Applications

Aquarius Marine Solar Power

An integrated marine solar power solution from EMP does more than just collect solar energy and is based around the flexible Aquarius MAS (Management and Automation System) This compact marine computer also monitors the performance of a solar power array & battery pack, logs data, switches equipment on/off plus can calculate vessel emissions and record fuel consumption. In addition the Aquarius MAS will monitor system performance and alarms.

The Aquarius MAS can interface with other equipment on a ship or vessel and be used to monitor engines, generators, pumps and a range of other equipment.

The Aquarius MAS H/W & S/W platform is based upon the reliable and robust KEI 3240 Data Logger which is already in use on hundreds of vessels including tug boats, training ships, tankers and bulk ore carriers. A basic Aquarius MAS package can also be expanded to include data logger functions and additional hardware later if required.mas_cpu_delos_20141016_5bAquarius MAS CPU/AGU

An Aquarius Marine Solar Power or Aquarius MAS + Solar package is suitable for new-building ship projects and can also be retrofitted to existing vessels.

A marine solar power system or array using the Aquarius MAS can also be integrated with wind power devices including EMP's EnergySail technology.

EMP can also arrange installation support including design & supply of deck frames for solar panels (if required), project management and on-site installation supervision.
