Innovative & Reliable Solutions for Lower Emission & Sustainable Shipping
Eco Marine Power (EMP) offers a range of sustainable shipping related products and services. These include solar power based solutions, marine computer systems & eco-friendly ship concepts and consulting services. Our current line up of products and services are listed below.
Aquarius MAS - Data Logging, Emissions Calculations & Performance Monitoring
Compact & reliable computer platform for ships and vessels
The Aquarius Management & Automation System or Aquarius MAS™ is a marine computer system developed jointly with KEI System which can perform a variety of roles including data logging, performance monitoring and alarm management.
The system can also monitor fuel oil consumption (FOC), calculate vessel emissions (CO2, NOx, SOx) and be scaled to suit most types of vessels from small passenger ferries and offshore support vessels to large ocean going bulk carriers, passenger ferries, tankers and cargo ships.
This highly flexible system is pre-configured before delivery, easy to install and can be upgraded to monitor additional systems later if required.
The Aquarius MAS can also be integrated with renewable energy devices such as solar panels, wind power devices and EMP's EnergySail technology. Read more...
Aquarius Marine Solar Power - Unique Solutions with Lightweight Solar Panels
Solar power systems for shipping including energy storage & MPPT charge controllers.
EMP offers a range of marine solar power solutions for ships integrated with and managed by our Aquarius Management & Automation System (MAS). Using solar power on ships helps reduce fuel costs and airborne emissions such as Sox, Nox & CO2.
In co-operation with our strategic partner, Solbian Energie Alternative of Italy, we can also offer flexible high quality solar panels which are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. These unique solar panels are also lightweight and thin which makes them ideal for use on ships ranging from large cargo vessels and cruise ships to smaller passenger ferries and even recreational boats such as yachts.
We are also able to supply battery packs via our strategic partner - The Furukawa Battery Co, Ltd of Japan. These battery packs are integrated with and managed by the Aquarius MAS.
Our integrated marine solar power systems also include MPPT charge controllers and monitoring software. In addition EMP can provide a full-turn key solution including site engineering and installation. Read More...
Energy Storage Solutions for Shipping, Offshore and Marine
High performance batteries for renewable energy solutions and back-up power
In co-operation with The Furukawa Battery Co. Ltd. of Japan, Eco Marine Power is able to engineer and supply a range of battery packs or energy storage solutions for use with Aquarius Marine Solar Power or Aquarius MAS + Solar solutions.
These battery packs or sets include the FCP series which has a modular design for superior vibration resistance and longer life. The mounting unit has a space-saving design that reduces installation and maintenance time.
A range of battery units are available ranging from 24V 220Ah (FC-38) to 48V 4000Ah (FCP Series).
Other voltages and larger capacity battery packs are also available plus individual batteries for marine or UPS use can also be supplied.
Furukawa Battery also manufacture batteries for auto-mobiles, motorcycles, electric powered vehicles, stationary use, trains, aircraft, portable use and solar power generation systems. Read More...
System Design, Marine Renewable Energy Surveys and Consulting Services
Low emission vessel concepts, system design, renewable energy surveys & technology management
Trying to work out which environmentally friendly power or propulsion system is best for a particular boat, ship, ferry or vessel etc can be a daunting task. Not only is there are a wide range of options available, but the cost of these systems also varies considerably. In addition, the environmental and cost benefits of these solutions are difficult to assess and compare against similar traditional systems.
Eco Marine Power can assist ship owners, shipyards, ferry operators & cruise lines to navigate through this maze of data and propose solutions that will best meet their needs. Our services include design support, installation surveys, technology management and the survey of vessels and ships to assess their suitability for renewable energy solutions.
We can also help with advice on various technologies such as energy storage, solar panels and marine computer & automation systems. Read more...
Marine Computer & Automation Systems - Flexible & Innovative
Proven & type approved solutions
Working together with KEI System, EMP has developed a number of innovative marine computer management and automation systems which facilitate the monitoring of equipment on ships, log performance data, control equipment and manage renewable energy systems plus carry out other functions.
The Aquarius Management and Automation System or Aquarius MAS™ is the first of these systems to be released and allows for the performance of marine renewable energy systems to be monitored along with other equipment on the ship including main engines and generators.
This system and others to be released such as the EnergySail Automated Control System (ACS) are based upon the robust and reliable KEI 3240 computer platform which has proven itself on-board hundreds of ships in service today. Read more...
Flexible Solar Panels for Ships & Marine Applications
These marine solar panels are designed to withstand the harsh conditions at sea & are suitable for all vessels ranging from small pleasure craft to ocean-going passenger ferries & cargo ships.
These high quality solar panels are also incorporated into our Aquarius Marine Solar Power and Aquarius MAS + Solar solutions.
Solbian has a range of products, solar cell technologies and accessories suitable for ships and customized panels are also possible upon request.
For more information please see Marine Solar Panels
Fuel Flow Meters - A Diverse Range of Flow Meters for Shipping
In co-operation with Nitto Seiko Co. Ltd., of Japan we are able to supply fuel flow meters with pulse output suitable for integration with our Aquarius MAS. Nitto Sekio have manufactured many flow meters by using their precision processing technologies accumulated over many years.
The company has a line-up of models most suitable for each type of fluid and for each application, including positive displacement flow meters as our main products, Coriolis mass flow meters, electromagnetic flow meters and turbine flow meters, supporting process management in various industries.
Aquarius MRE System (Under Development) - Renewable Energy for Shipping
Integrated wind & solar power system for shipping
The patented Aquarius MRE System® is an advanced integrated system of rigid sails, solar panels & energy storage modules that will allow ships to tap into renewable energy by harnessing the power provided by the wind and sun. The array of rigid sails will be automatically positioned to best suit the prevailing weather conditions and can be lowered and stored when not in use or in bad weather.
The array of rigid sails are based on EMP's EnergySail® technology and can even be used when a ship is at anchor or in harbour.
It is expected this system will provide annual savings of between 10-20% on large ships and up to 40% on other ship types. Read more...
EnergySail (Under Development) - Wind & Solar Power for Sustainable Shipping
Advanced & innovative rigid sail design with integrated computer control
The patented EnergySail® is an innovative rigid sail device being developed by Eco Marine Power linked to a computer control system which automatically positions it to be suit the prevailing weather conditions. The EnergySail can be fitted with marine grade solar panels or other devices and used either as a stand-alone unit or as part of an array.
The EnergySail is suitable for a wide range of ships including ferries, bulk ore carriers, oil tankers and offshore support vessels.
The computer control system for the EnergySail has been developed in co-operation with KEI System of Osaka and can be integrated with other marine computer systems such as the Aquarius MAS or KEI 3240 IAS.
A variation of the EnergySail can also be used on Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV's). Read more...
