Eidesvik Offshore’s platform supply vessel Viking Princess has returned to service after being refitted with a hybrid power system from Wärtsilä that incorporates batteries. The Norwegian vessel is the first offshore support vessel in which batteries have been used to reduce the number of generators on board the ship. The new energy storage solution will improve engine efficiency, generate fuel savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Developed by a Fistuca, a Dutch company, Blue Hammer is a pile-driving solution unlike any other. Rather than hammering a monopile into the ground, it uses acceleration of a water column by a gas mixture to provide the driving force – a mechanism that can deliver a large amount of energy without exciting undue vibration and noise.
Rolls-Royce Marine has launched a new generation energy management system that trials show can cut fuel costs by 15 per cent. It will allow customers to reduce energy usage, fuel consumption and operating costs while supporting environmental compliance and providing performance information that enables a ship to comply with ship energy efficiency management rules and IMO regulations.
Cummins has unveiled an environmentally friendly engine for tugs, offshore vessels and workboats that meets Tier 4 requirements under the US Environmental Protection Agency. It is pairing the QSK38 engine with a selective catalytic reduction system for cleaner emissions. The Tier 4 engine “removes complexity while saving time and reducing costs.”
