Eco Marine Power (EMP) Monday released several key findings related to the use of solar power on ships and the selection and installation of related equipment.
The study was carried out over a five-year period and included: installation of a trial system on the high speed RoRo Ferry Blue Star Delos, several ship surveys, computer-aided analysis, plus evaluation of various equipment in a test lab and also at an outdoor evaluation area.
It covered a range of topics including system design, system performance, installation methods, hardware selection and a review of marine-grade photovoltaic (PV) technologies.
The overall system design used as a basis for the study was EMP’s Aquarius Marine Solar Power. This system incorporates class-approved hardware and is able to provide a stable and reliable source of emissions-free power on-board ships or it could be used as an emergency back-up power system.
Some key findings resulting from the study included:
Based on these and other findings resulting from the study, EMP has taken a number of actions including product improvements, with some key highlights being:

“These insights have been used to refine our system design and product offerings and we are now in the process of deploying commercial systems.”
