Construction support vessel efficiency enhanced by hybrid propulsion
The technology group Wärtsilä is to provide hybrid propulsion capability for a new offshore wind construction support vessel. The 'Acta Centaurus', a DP2 walk-to-work construction support vessel owned by Netherlands-based Acta Marine, will thus gain fuel consumption and environmental benefits through being able to operate the vessel with less running engines at more optimised load.
Energy storage system demonstrates phased increase of renewable energy
Wärtsilä has commissioned its 6 MW / 6 MWh energy management and storage system project for its customer ContourGlobal Bonaire on the Caribbean island of Bonaire.
Wärtsilä and LUT University research 100% renewable energy systems
The technology group Wärtsilä and Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT, a Finnish public university, have signed a research agreement on strategic power system modelling with the aim of understanding and developing paths towards 100% renewable energy systems.
World's first hybrid retrofit for short-sea shipping vessel
Wärtsilä has signed an agreement with Hagland Shipping AS for a hybrid retrofit installation. The project will take place onboard the 'Hagland Captain', a general cargo vessel owned by Hagland Shipping. It will be the first project of its kind ever in short-sea shipping applications.
Wartsila are a Finnish company that manufactures, services and supplies power systems and auxillary equipment for the marine and energy markets.
GE Power, owned by General Electric, are a world leader in power generation.
Solar hybrid supertanker saves $60 million per year on fuel
Sauter Carbon Offset Design presents Deliverance, a DynaWing solar hybrid supertanker that qualifies as the largest and by far the greenest post panamax vessel to be built and as such the most economical form of crude oil transport to and from any part of the globe.
