Eco Marine Power's Renewable Energy System Installed on Cargo Ship

Eco Marine Power JSMEA NewsAn innovative ship solar power system developed by Eco Marine Power (EMP) has recently been installed on the large general cargo ship MV Panamana. The installation work was carried out by the ship’s crew with remote support provided by Zeaborn Ship Management (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. and EMP in Japan. All work was carried out as the ship operated normally with much of the installation done while the ship was at sea.

MV Panamana is a 54, 694 metric tonne (MT) open hatch general cargo/container carrier with 2 x 70 MT gantry cranes. The ship is owned by Masterbulk Pte. Ltd. (Singapore) and was built in Japan by Oshima Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. Read more...

Solar Sails Unfurl in Bid to Make Shipping Green: Q&A

Iain Wilson. BloombergNEF. August 6, 2019.

Arrays of solar sails affixed to the ships that carry global trade over the world’s oceans could be one of the answers to making the shipping industry cleaner and greener, according to Greg Atkinson, founder and chief technology officer of Eco Marine Power Co.

Eco Marine (Power) is a small startup headquartered in Fukuoka, Japan. The company and its partners are working to develop products to help the shipping industry cut emissions, including a rigid sail called EnergySail that is able to be fitted with solar modules to tap into the power of both the wind and sun. The company is also working with a battery manufacturer on a system to introduce more energy storage to ships. Read more...

The Winds are Changing

Dry Bulk Magazine - Summer 2018.

The winds are changingIn recent years there has been a clear shift towards reducing harmful exhaust emissions from the world’s merchant shipping fleet. From January 2020, the sulfur limit for fuel oil used on ships will be 0.5% m/m (mass by mass). This, combined with a growing trend towards more sustainable practices in the shipping industry, is encouraging many ship owners to consider alternative and cleaner sources of propulsion and power on their ships..

One obvious source of clean power for ships is the wind and in 2012 a development project was started in Japan to address the limitations of earlier JAMDA sails, plus bring in new concepts and automation technologies 2Mb PDF

Solar Power Could Reinvent the Shipping Industry—If We Let It

NOVA Next. PBS. 18th April. 2018.

Around 100,000 large cargo ships regularly crisscross the world’s oceans, delivering cargo from point A to point B. In doing so, they burn through a staggering amount of fuel—around 250 million tons annually. There are clear real-world repercussions: the industry is the world’s sixth-largest source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions (at 800 million tons annually), and its pollution has been pegged to 60,000 cardiopulmonary and lung cancer deaths each year.

New Ship With Rigid Solar Sails Harnesses the Power of Sun and Wind at the Same Time

Futurism. January 26, 2018

In 2019 the world’s first solar energy sails will be put to the test. Called EnergySails, the technology should enable ships to use both solar and wind energy at the same time. The sails were developed by Japanese renewable energy systems company Eco Marine Power (EMP) as part of a larger project known as Aquarius Marine Renewable Energy. EMP is working on alongside other strategic partners and Japanese ship owner Hisafuku Kisen K.K to equip bulk carrier ships with the technology that, according to EMP, is an “advanced integrated system of rigid sails, marine-grade solar panels, energy storage modules, and marine computers.” EMP said the its project will enable ships to tap into renewable energy by harnessing the power provided by the wind and sun.

Eco Marine Power’s environment-friendly ships

EURObiZ Japan - February 2015

E.E. Cummings once wrote: “for whatever we lose, it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.” In today’s world, that quote can take on a rather different meaning. According to an article in The Guardian, recent data suggests that just 15 of the world’s biggest ships emit as much pollution as all of the world’s cars combined. In Japan, one of the world’s busiest shipping nations, that could translate into major health and environmental problems. Read more...

Turning Massive Cargo Ships Into Sailboats Could Save 25 Million Tons of Fuel

Take Part. December 24th 2012

If the oceanic cargo industry were a country, it would be the sixth largest emitter of carbon dioxide worldwide.
