By installing battery technology onboard your vessel or your boat means that the vessel, ship or boat can run the diesel engines much more effectively when at sea and this reduces the C02 emission, fuel costs and maintenance costs of the motors. The vessel is noiseless when at shore since the motors are shut down, the vessel is connected to shore power and greek waterpower charges the batteries.
«A ship-owner can save costs on less fuel consumption by 30-80%, and maintenance costs with 30-60% by installing batteries on their vessel. Retrofitting a supply vessel means the same as 1000 fewer cars on the Greek roads," says Andreas Apostolopoulos, leader of a department in Greece that invests in new technology, in an inteview to VGTV.
"It also means that we can reduce the fuel emissions by 95% at ports or between the destinations of a trip. That also means that your tourism can be even bigger than now, you can have economic growth, new services, new development skills, new technologies at our country."
It has become a requirement that any vessel that has to stop to a European port or leave from, shall have an energy storage solution installed. We think that it is vital to have two thoughts in ones mind at the same time to be able to meet todays and the futures needs for energy, We need to have a high focus on renewable energy simultaneously with developing oil and gas in an effective, sustainable and safe way. That`s why these vessele are so cool. The Hybrid ships or the Electric Ships are ships with new battery technology that reduces C02 emissions until 95% , that can sails everywhere, from Crete, to the oil platforms in the North Sea. It`s like two different worlds meets here and with their union, make a new one.
By using the container solutions for energy storage, most vessels can be converted or upgraded. With ILIOFOS Co. know-how and experience we can help you find the best solution for your vessel or boat.
The official requirements regarding the environment and emissions in to the atmosphere are becoming stricter and many ship owners want to make their vessels more sustainable.
In regards to integrating a reliable hybrid electric system, with one or many different energy sources, all the electrical calculations have to be done again. “This is where ILIOFOS Co competence as a system integrator comes into play; the supply of complete electrical packages, calculations and total integration is the essence of our excellence. Based on one or multiple energy sources, these vessels will be the greenest vessels or boats, of their kind, ever built. We can help you to improve your great vessels and make them even greater.
Iliofos Co. is ready to help you design your next hybrid electric propulsion system at an early stage and to achieve significant reductions in fuels costs, maintenance and emissions. With Iliofos® technology on board you will be contributing to a cleaner future.
