Shipping: Emission Possible

The ship tech needed to get green shipping corridors up and running is ready to go

Recognizing the need for climate action, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adapted a new strategy in 2023 to incorporate a net-zero emissions goal for all vessels by or around 2050. “With a lifetime of 20-30 years for a vessel built today, it is vital to start thinking now about how to reach these goals. 2050 isn’t that far off,” urges Asbjørn Haslebakke, CEO of Helsinki-headquartered maritime power electronics specialist The Switch, a BEMAC company. Encouraging zero emissions Green shipping corridors have been suggested as one key way to move toward ...

First all-electric harbor tug in United States is powered by ABB propulsion

The ABB powered all-electric tug eWolf has been christened this week at the Port of San Diego, California, marking a new chapter in vessel electrification in the United States. Owned and operated by Crowley, eWolf features an end-to-end electric propulsion system from ABB including a 6.2-megawatt-hour energy storage system (ESS). This allows the vessel to achieve 70 short tons of bollard pull with zero emissions and complete a full day of work on a single charge. Given electricity is cheaper to produce on shore than onboard a vessel, the ESS ...

Höegh Autoliners secures fuel savings and long-term CII compliance with Accelleron and Hanwha engine part-load optimization

Hanwha and Accelleron have performed an engine part load optimization (EPLO) for Höegh Autoliners supporting long-term energy efficiency for its 7,850 CEU (Car Equivalent Units) car carrier Höegh Detroit. The success of the project to improve the vessel’s Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rating has led to an order for EPLOs on a further seven vessels owned or operated by Höegh. At a recent sea trial, EPLO demonstrated fuel saving of 10g/kWh, equivalent to 5% of total fuel consumption. The improvement not only enables the vessel to operate in a high ...
