Norway-based Golden Energy Offshore (GEO) Tuesday placed an order for battery-powered SAVe Energy systems for two offshore vessels (PSVs), NS Orla and NS Frayja, from Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine.
In addition, the two vessels will receive an upgrade of the existing Rolls-Royce ship design engineering package to match the new features. This includes an upgrade of the Dynamic Positioning (DP) system, Main Switchboard and the ACON control system coupled with a Rolls-Royce Energy Monitoring system.
The development is part of GEO’s intention to comply with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) standard for a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP).
“We started off by integrating sustainability into business processes and systems years ago, and it has developed into a continuous journey of success with regards to energy efficiency, operational excellence and sustainability,” said Per Ivar Fagervoll, Golden Energy Offshore CEO.
“Our environmental journey has been a success, and a retrofit to hybrid battery power is the logical next step for us.”
The SAVe Energy units from Rolls-Royce is a cost competitive Energy Storage Unit that includes a highly efficient and liquid cooled battery system in a modular design, says Rolls-Royce.
The product is scalable according to energy and power requirements, and complies with international legislations for low and zero emission propulsion systems.
“SAVe Energy is well suited for upgrade projects such as the one for Golden Energy where the system is delivered in a containerised solution that can be mounted on the deck of an existing ship,” said Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Rolls-Royce, VP Sales and Customer Management – Commercial Marine.
“It can be used for peak shaving, spinning reserve and, of course, also for fully battery powered vessels of several types in addition to offshore vessels, such as cruise ships, ferries, tugs and workboats.
“We believe focusing on reduced fuel consumption and emissions gives Golden Energy Offshore a competitive advantage towards charterers. Of course we also have an environmental responsibility, and as a company focus on emissions and sustainability.”
