Marine Renewable Energy and Ship Renewable Energy Solutions Design. Ship owners, ship managers, shipyards and vessel operators are increasingly looking to incorporate marine renewable energy & hybrid marine power technologies into the mix of propulsion & power systems for their vessels. Not only do these technologies reduce noxious gas emissions but they also reduce fuel consumption and deliver cost savings to vessel operators and/or owners. To help develop the right solution for each vessel or ship, Eco Marine Power works with strategic partners to design eco-friendly marine power solutions that include the latest solar power, wind power and energy management technologies.
Our unique renewable energy for ship solutions include design concepts exclusively developed by Eco Marine Power (EMP) such as the Aquarius Eco Ship, Tonbo Solar-Electric Hybrid Ferry ('Tonbo') and Medaka Eco Commuter Ferry ('Medaka') or include technologies developed in co-operation with or supplied by, our strategic technology partners both in Japan and overseas.
We also provide guidance regarding matching the most suitable Marine Batteries to the customers application in co-operation with The Furukawa Battery Company of Japan.
These class-approved high quality batteries include the sealed Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) types and the Ultra Battery (UB) series that incorporate hybrid battery technology.
Trying to work out which environmentally friendly power system is best for a particular boat, ship, ferry or vessel etc can be a daunting task. Not only is there are a wide range of options available, but the cost of these systems also varies considerably. In addition, the environmental and cost benefits of these solutions are difficult to asses and compare against similar traditional systems.
Eco Marine Power can assist ship owners, shipyards, ferry operators & cruise lines to navigate through this maze of data and propose solutions that will best meet their needs. We can also help with advice on various technologies such as energy storage, solar panels, marine solar power and marine computer systems.
Eco Marine Power is at the forefront of developing innovative low emission ship design concepts and marine renewable energy solutions that use the power of the wind and sun to help power ships of all sizes.
As part of this work we undertake green ship design studies either alone or with technology partners in order to develop concept designs & specifications. We also work with ship designers, shipyards, government agencies or other interested parties to commercialise these designs.
Currently we are working on an Eco Ship concept study that will incorporate our patented Aquarius MRE & EnergySail technologies. We are also studying how solar-electric vessels can be used as part of a modern transport network on urban waterways.
In addition we are exploring the use of marine renewable energy technology on Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV's).
