Compliance with environmental requirements at sea
Offshore/supply vessels frequently operate in emission control areas and for clients who place strict requirements on low or zero-emission operations. Operating far from shore, you cannot run your vessel on fully electrical power, but you can use onboard batteries for DP on electrical power, limiting the number of gensets and engines in use. Batteries can also be used for peak shaving and load levelling, optimising the efficiency of your diesel/HFO main engines and preventing start-up of extra gensets to cover transitory demand spikes.
Offshore/supply vessels can be fitted with onboard batteries below deck or in A60 deckhouses. Batteries can be charged from onshore charging solutions and/or from the onboard engines or generators. Charging sockets can be fitted to port or starboard, or both, and the power management and automation systems of the vessel are upgraded to enable full or partial electric operation as per your requirements.
