Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries has developed a multi-power grid system for 15,000+ teu ships, which will slash emissions.
The system, which has received an approval in principle, splits bog boxship power systems in two:essential loads, required to operate the ship and service loads, needed to keep reefers at the right temperature among a host of other necessities.
HHI says the elimination of voltage conversion brings savings of about $320,000 per vessel per year.
“We will continuously work on the research and development towards better ship efficiency for other types of vessels as well,” an HHI official. (Splash)
